Through the years, I have written poems, and now I wish to share them with you. My family has been an inspiration, and my love of nature is quite evident. When I was a child, my father recited poetry to me, and as I grew up, it seemed natural to write my own views of life down on paper. There is a variety, and I hope you will find your favorite. In between the covers, There is a poem that’s right for you. There’s a poem here for the lover And the nature lover too. A poem here for each step in life, For the toddler and the old. Words that stay within the mind Are treasures to behold.
