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!

Ogden Nash Couplets

There once was a muse who espoused creativity;
Tho' laughingly inspired words lacking civility.

Easy to imitate badly, impossible to imitate well,
Nash’s comedic style is irreverantly silent as a bell.


Easy to spot his orange hair,
Trump has a flair for his lair.

He takes much from the poor
For he owes his rich amour.

Not other wives, oh no!
But his Russian sponsor-o!
