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!

If I Were God
If I were God, I would not stay away from earth,<BR>
But come down here where all is dirt,<BR>
Where rich and poor are not the same<BR>
Where money gathers all the fame.<BR>
I'd visit the fair and then the slums,<BR>
And then to the park and watch the bums,<BR>
I'd see the children pale and wan,<BR>
From lack of fresh air and the sun.<BR>
And then I'd visit Park Avenue,<BR>
And find that there are beggars few,<BR>
But look at jewels and ermine fine<BR>
Where all the people have no time.<BR>
They rush to subways, trains and cars,<BR>
Don't know there's a moon or even stars,<BR>
Onc more I will tell you its the same,<BR>
That money gathers all the fame.<BR>
If I were God and saw these things<BR>
That poverty and money brings<BR>
I'd bow my head into my hands,<BR>
And sorrowfully admit I made this land.<BR>
Then change it all, with a Master's Hand.

Circa 1941-1942
