About This Author
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!
Poetic Tides Through Time

|An English sonnet with structured meter
Is the direction for this sunny day
Sadly, I can’t write a centimeter
Of profound sentiment these words won’t say.
Trying to write feelings wont to express,
Action words leap and bounce upon my paper.
Writing through the night till dawn breaks moonless,
Until the poem fast becomes a caper.
I’ll pen my verses with creative care;
From the start, I vow this sad grey saga
Will tell a story that will end somewhere
Or as fate destined, fade like the quagga.
A story poem quite fits this sonnet
If I add nine voices, 'tis a nonet!
