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:

Drop me a note by clicking on the "Contact Me" link above and let me know you stopped to visit.

Happy reading and write on!

My Soothing Spot
There's a shady spot, near a little brook,
         Where I wander every day,
This place I call my secret nook
         It helps my cares away.

It helps to cheer me when I'm blue,
         This little spot so dear
It makes my troubles very few,
         It chases all my fears.

I love this little place of mine,
         It never says a thing,
It's always there, at any time
         And joy to me it brings.

Dedicated To Gordon Ave
         and all its Residents
