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!

Restrictions: None
On summer nights when my work is done,
And the breezes gently blow,
I like to watch the setting sun,
Down where the river flows.

I sit upon my favorite rock,
Down on the sandy beach
To all the trees and clouds I talk
A love of nature is taught by each.

Then finally when its very dark
And stars coming peeping through
The night owl takes the place of the lark,
While the noises are so few.

I leave this happy place of mine
And slowly tread my way
In the distant I hear the church bells chime
T'is the end of a perfect day.

Somehow to me a night like this
So quiet and cool and dark
Brings me happiness and bliss
In this lonely, haunted park.

Circa 1941-1942
