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!


Poetic Tides Through Time
#908347 added April 10, 2017 at 10:43am
Restrictions: None
Spring Snow
Falling heavy wet flakes of snow
Pelting faster, then drifting slow;
Branches laden with globs of white,
Struggling, remain strongly upright
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

Lighter feathers dropping in sheets,
Touching down, snowing hard not weak;
Wet flakes weigh on bended branches
Bowing white tipped green fir flanches;
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

Wind blasts speedily whip and blow
Swirling snowflakes once softly slow;
Gathering speed, twirling faster,
Forming visual alabaster;
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

White inches heap and plunge from trees;
Snow mist idly floats in the breeze.
Watching safe are we from within,
Happily knitting, staying warm;
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

Clear opaque translucent droplets,
Mixing with flakes, pearly white bits
Of achromatic rain’s rumbling;
Steady downward icy tumbling,
Bright transitioning snowy rain.

Light cold sleeting wintry rain falls,
Until white ice frost covers all.
