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 Thoughts
T'is dark dark outside and the snow falls swift,
While the vehicles ramble by
And I alone and sad here sit,
And watch the world go by.

I see the crowd go to and fro,
I hear the children shout,
While I alone sit here as though,
I wish I were without.

But yet to me this scene so near,
Bring's happiness and joy,
I sit and think of friends so dear,
That no one can destroy.

Dedicated To Pike Street
And All Her Residents.

Circa 1941-1942
