|About the Book|
Why should you buy this poetry book from someone who never had any poetry published. Mainly to help your own creativity. Im leaving a blank page on the right side of the book for you to write or draw, please feel free to rewrite my poems to fit your personal feelings. Many of these poems are longing directed to one particular person. Shes my Muse. Whenever possible I wrote them so they could be from a man or a woman. So as to indicate that these poems are trying to reveal that I want to understand other peoples feelings by understanding my own. Rhyming has always come easily to me. Mostly the poems are Shakespearean sonnets. Youll find some different styles imbedded in some poems. The poems in this book are romantic with a touch of goofy. Not surprisingly Dr. Suess and Ogden Nash were my favorite poets as a kid. I did read a lot while growing up and enjoyed listening to pop music. So my poetry does reflect music I listened to by the age of thirteen, so that would be pre-1972. Ive stuttered all my life. When I was in 7th grade I took a poetry class, my mom encouraged that, so I could express my feelings. Stuttering has enabled me to have an expanded vocabulary. People would tell me they never liked poetry but they enjoy my stories. To close, I think youll enjoy reading them time and again. One more thing, I do write with pen on paper then enter them in the computer when ready to publish. February, 1st 2011.
