After many requests for my poems in a book,
I pulled them together to see how they’d look.
It seemed overwhelming; I overcame fear.
I perused all the words that I’d written this year.
One hundred and forty-eight rhymes in five months,
Looking back, I’m amazed that this old dog still hunts.
Then I had to describe it and give it a name,
Quiet Time Rhymes is the book it became.
I added another line, shares a bit more.
Peace in Pandemic describes what’s in store.
Then on to the cover, provide some insight.
I found in my photos some birds in mid-flight.
I remembered the walk on the beach when they flew.
It brought back that morning, the peace that I knew.
Decide on the pricing, they asked the amount.
I set it at ten cents a rhyme if you count.
I wrote from my heart and I shared them with you.
You asked for a book, it is here, it’s brand new.
