My neighbors think that I'm strange.
At five, my neighbor asked me
It's not uncommon to find me
Into the early hours of morn
It is the time when others sleep
The Word Weaver
Like a spider spinning a great web, the poet
weaves words for a reader.
This part of my site is dedicated to all those who inspired me over
the years to keep writing: In order of appearance in my life: Hal (HaroldNoel
Clarke - 12/26/35-11/6/58) who had time for his little sister, when everyone
else was too busy; Franny, who was like a mother hen with her little sister,
doing all those little things that made me feel special;( I don't remember
if I ever told you, but I know where that doll carriage came from the Christmas
I was eight.) Father Schuyler Jenkins who showed me the path to God, and
blessed me with his guidance; God who provided the inspiration and the
talent to put down on paper what lives in my heart and mind; Tom, my husband,
who has loved me all these many years, even when I have been unlovable,
who has forgiven me all sorts of mistakes and nasty moods and has always
been there for me when I needed him; My children, Michele, William and
Kathleen, who have filled my life with love, laughter, memories, tears,
ideas for poems, things they made for me at school, and who taught me how
to see the world differently; My lovely granddaughters, Crystal and Alexis
who continue to inspire me to write down those things that are often so
hard for me to say out loud, but are teaching me to say them; Edna Barker,
a local poet and old friend from church, who encouraged me to keep writing,
especially poetry; My family and friends who took time to read my first
two books of poetry and gave me feedback and encouragement to continue
with my writing.
For ease in locating certain poems and faster loading of pages on the net, I have divided my poetry into sections according to types. Some of them could have been classified differently, but this is my website, so I did them the way I felt that they fit best.
