My Poetry

Writing poetry over the years has allowed me to put into words my feelings about the people, places and events that have shaped my life. 


Oh would that I

Could turn back time

And stay those hasty

Words of mine



As night gives way

To another bustling day

Orion in all his glory

Silently slips away


Picking Blackberries

Great Grandmother

Little Robin

My little friend
Comes every day
To beg at
My back door.

He never says
A word of thanks
But back he
Comes for more.

Does he know
The joy he brings
When he flutters
Into view?

Or how my heart
So fills with love
For a little bird
Like you.
