Since my children have left home, and as I have moved into retirement and had more free time, I have written more, and perhaps more structured, poems, some of which I find the most pleasing*.
Because my efforts in verse always gave me some satisfaction I preserved a good number of them on a variety of single sheets of paper. My father typed-out most of my childish efforts and I still have the manuscripts and his typed versions for those. I've now decided to publish these efforts on the internet; though I've called this section 'My Poems' the earlier output is mere verse. But I like to think that later efforts have from time to time strayed into poetry.
*At age 65 I published a book called 'Sixty-Five' that contains a selection of sixty five of the poems I had written up to that time. On the 'My Poems Index' page you can see how to obtain a copy of the book.
