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!

Books To Read
Soiled pages, words that are blurred
Broken covers; fuzzy and furred
Small pictures; coloring all faded
So hard to reddit, so hard to date it.
Still they are books to read

Dusty and yellow; crumpled with age
Pieces and parts; torn off each page
Once they were thought of, as bright
                   and new
Now they are old books, to me and you
Yet they are books to read.

Circa 1941-1942
