Born, raised, and lived my whole life in southern MN. I started writing poetry as a teenager. I was never very good at it. But still I tried. Over the many years, I have written a handful of good poems. Not bad, for 30 years effort. Most of my poems are of the rhyming type. It seems most people prefer prose-type these days. I have never performed any of my poems for anyone. I doubt I ever shall.
It's time for bed, the walrus said; and so it is as now. It's time for bed, and so my head is ready for the bow. But words still gait upon the wilt of never and the row. And gone are they that hope and pray for ever and for thou. It's time for bed the moon has said; yet ever in her tide, the moon is dead and night has fled, and dawn is by her side. So wilt the sky, in blossom red, awaking, waken wide; and while I sleep of dreaming deep, I dream of you beside.
