About This Author

Hi there!

I'm a grandmother, a nursing educator, an avid knitter and an aspiring writer. I created this page for family and friends who expressed interest in reading my writing. It is mostly poetry with a few short stories sprinkled here and there .

The poem on this page is one my Mom favored. The collectible trinket is from a needlework picture of Longfellow's home she completed. Mom loved poetry and was an avid reader. She and my brother,Rasputin , inspire me still.

I have a published form modification called the Rondel Grand Modified; it is located here:

Happy reading and write on!

My Dearest Wish
If I could have one wish today,
         It probably would be this
Please bring a baby sister my way
         And fill my heart with bliss.

It's dreadful to be lonesome
         With no one round about
No one to play with and have fun
         No happy children's shouts.

Just me alone to sit and ponder
         And pass the hours away
Often my thoughts just idly wander,
         To a far-off nook and stay.

So if there is an angel sweet
         Who hears my wish today
Please make my dreams complete
         And send a sister out my way.

Dedicated to all Babys
         In The World.

Circa 1940-1942
