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!

Elfin Magic
You arrived right before Christmas,
Little elf – called “Elf on a Shelf”,
Seeking a child’s home for yourself.

Riding with UPS, to your special
Family’s house, pointing the way;
There they are - Sadie and Reilly!

You perched on a stair banister
Riding in a candy cane sleigh;
Elf! Find another place to play!

You jumped into the flour jar, tipped
It over - thought it was fresh snow.
Flapping arms sculpting angel wing dough.

Where or where will you next appear?
Your elfin magic knows no bounds
Christmas elf, silent magic sounds.
