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:

Six Little Words
|Old form is from another land;|
My pen will give it a try.
This will not sound as grand
As ‘twas writ by native guy.
I rather like this simple plan
Of six words in a line.
Add a rhyme; oh wise man
Who invented this poem form design!
If we could speak only six
Words in a sentence- no more!
Imagine our writers’ efforts to nix
Run-on sentences at their door!
But syllables we would rather count,
In English yet, if you please!
Six little words- a small amount;
I think I’d rather write Vietnamese!
