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:
http://www.poetrymagnumopus.com/forums/topic/2842-invented-forms-found-only-at-w...

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

Trinkets in Trimeter
A gem, a pearl, a prize
Gleam bright, silver so fair
First drew my sight, then won
My eye, my heart, my care

My eye, my heart, my care,
Soft draped across my arm
Bits of bids tempt me with
Their glitter and their charm

Their glitter and their charm
A wristlet, a gold ring
And dangly earrings too
Silver and gold flanked bling.

Silver and gold flanked bling
Of color favored blue
Trifles strike my fancy
Of many charms, not few.

Of many charms, not few
My bills of green shrink slim
But my trinkets grow from
Baubles bought on a whim

Baubles bought on a whim
Perhaps I’ll stow away
My final cash remains
For Nature’s rainy day.

For Nature’s rainy day,
My eye, my heart, my care,
A gem, a pearl a prize,
Brings me such joy to wear.

…with apologies to Arthur George [1557-1625]
