About Me

I’m an elderly lady with three grown children, two teenage granddaughters, two great grandkids, and two cats. I love to listen to the news, while I work on my four blogs and my poems website. I paint ( watercolors ) and I read, write poetry, and eat lots of junk food and love my morning cup of coffee. I do container gardening on my deck and porch. I have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and I’m somewhat housebound but still very positive. I like to watch old and new movies that are clean funny and sad but with a happy ending. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and find out a little bit about me. It would be nice if you could leave a comment to tell me a little about you and your blog.

When I was in second grade my aunt gave me a little book of poems called, “A Child’s Garden of Verses” written by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was one of my gifts that didn’t interest me much so I put it on the shelf in my room and never gave it another thought for many months. I can’t tell you how much   time had passed before I discovered the little blue book on my shelf and  decided to open it up. I loved the poems and read them often. I was always rhyming things in my head as a child but never wrote things down. I have a slight learning disability, did poorly in school, and quit the day I turned sixteen. For many years I kept busy as most do with taking care of home and family and friends and pets and working, and so on. I did keep up with my painting and they made nice gifts to give out to friends for every occasion. Now I’m old and crippled with rheumatoid arthritis and somewhat housebound, hence the Blogs and websites to keep myself busy and I began to write poems. My poems are not sophisticated or brilliant, just simple writings filled with memories of my childhood, my imagination, my experiences in life, and my plight with arthritis. I love my poems and don’t mind saying so. I hope to post some of my short stories when I get brave enough.    

    

What do you call a poet that has to have all the
verses rhyme? I have written beautiful words down on paper, leaving one with sweet lingering after thoughts. Keeping ones attention as long as the ink kept flowing. But ah, it did not rhyme. What must I do but go back and
make the last words in each sentence rhyme with the last word in each sentence. I then read over my verse and find that my beautiful thoughts have drifted off into someone else’s misty clouds, into someone else’s sweet lush Victorian gardens, while my words, my verse, my poem is left on dry, hard cracked ground,
but by golly…..it all rhymes !

    • Hello, I’m not quite sure about this.
      I have a hard time processing things as I have
      a learning disability, hence the bad spelling.
      I’ll need to go over the directions a couple of
      times to see if I can follow through with it.
      Thank you for your interest in my poems.
      Eileen

      • You are very welcome Eileen… I appreciated your posts and you can follow through if you like, or just post your normal posts… I’ll stop by and read either way..
