I have been writing poetry for a long time…a very long time!
Some of these poems posted here are well over 60 years old! This surprises even me to realize this!
Some of them amuse me, some of them annoy me, some of them inspire me!
My first poem was written when I was about 8 years old…
“It’s raining cats and dogs. I just stepped in a poodle.” I have, however, forgotten the rest…oh, well.
I have been wanting to put all of my poems into a book, but I just couldn’t figure out how to do it.
But for my birthday this year, my daughter, Cathy, and my son-in-law, Dan, made me a book of some of my poems. I was so touched and delighted…it was one of the nicest presents I’ve ever received in my entire life! I just couldn’t stop looking at it, turning the pages and reading every one over and over again!
I really wanted to gather the rest of my poems and put them into a book as well, but my grandson, Jonathan, suggested that I put them into a blog instead.
So…here it is!
