About the Book

This book takes the croak of frogs, the quack of ducks, the twinkle of stars, the bloom of flowers, the snowcapped mountains, the fragrant valleys, and the whispering winds and puts them to rhyme. Artwork created in the sloping mountains of Norway combined with these rhyming words tells tales of what once was to what is. This kiss of Mother Nature is a journey into a world of fantasy, a rapture of lonely shores by the seas as they sing their music of eternity. As Lord Byron once said, “I love not man the less, but nature more.” Come take this journey with me into the mystic.

About the Author

While living my youth in far away countries, my life in Florida has come full circle. This country courts the soul through the chirps, squawks and hoots of its inhabitants. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said “The poet, artist, sculptor and musician seek each to concentrate this radiance of the world on one point. And to satisfy the love of beauty which stimulates him to produce.” As the stars twinkle and the moon shines they each speak to me in their echoed voices while sending a thrilling pulse through me…I reside in Florida with my husband Sam.
