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 Tree
O little tree with limbs so bare
I feel so sad to see you there
You look so tall and lifeless old
When winter comes, you'll be so cold.

During the summer when its very warm
And to the lakes the people swarm
Beneath your boughs I calm lay
While to and fro you gently sway.

And now your children you have shed
While you yourself will go to bed,
Only to come back to us next spring
And to all of us, your breezes bring.

Cira 1941-1942
