About the Book

I wrote my first poem when I was in second grade. Okay, maybe it was my second term in second grade, but it amazed my teacher and my principal so much that they asked me to read it to every class in Woodside Elementary School. I was proud. I was embarrassed. I was too scared to do it, so I didn’t. It went something like this: Poor me, I got bit by a bee. I told my mommy and daddy, About that bad bee that bit me. It was a very long time ago, and that is about all that I remember of it. Our memories fade with age. Maybe that is a good thing.

About the Author

I am the youngest of three children and I was born alongside the Hudson River in Peekskill, NY. My great uncle was able to trace my maternal family roots all the way back to the original Dutch settlers of the area. I now live in Missouri but will soon be moving to Tennessee to live out my retirement starting in April 2019. I have other stories that I need to put to paper when I have that precious free time. This book is a collection of poems that I have written since moving to Missouri in 2001. I hope you find them enjoyable.
