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

Restrictions: None
Proclivity
"Monday’s child is fair of face";
"Monday, Monday, can’t trust that day!"
Monday sayings fill our space,
"It’s just another manic Monday!"

Transitional day is Monday;
Most dread the start of another week.
Takes us to work away from play;
It’s fun on restful Sunday we seek

There’s too much paper on my desk,
A pile of bills to go through;
Taxes to finish and poems to write,
Laundry and vacuuming too.

A sick dog in the family and
mucky relationship woes;
Post-Easter food fatigue – ('cept
macaroons) – I love those!

Cards to write to family
far away, and friends;
Did I mention laundry?
Yes - oh it never ends!

And my never-ending job search;
Must polish up my resume.
I have no hope though that
Anyone will hire me today.

Monday starts the week’s activity-
Procrastination is my preferred
Proclivity!
