About Me and My Poetry

Born 01 June 1940 at Roswell, New Mexico. Baptized 15 April 1972 in Spring Creek north of Cookeville, Tennessee, at Bend of the River. Ordained a high priest of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints on 04 July 1976 by the late Robert N. Brady. I believe that the standard works, or scriptures, of the church are written by prophets, by revelation and are holy and sacrd. I feel an obligation to share them all, one daily. The only contribution of mine is to turn the prose into poetry so it can be submitted as poetry. I do not claim credit for the basic ideas, but I accept blame for all my mistakes. Please respect the sources, and please be brutally honest, with details, to help the message bearer's improvement! Some may think that using the scriptures for inspiration means that originality is missing. In my poem archive you can also find non-scriptural works, on a variety of topics. Some have been selected, by editors, for publication in The United Kingdom and United States.

Thirty and three years after the signs of Christ's mortal birth,
Many devistations were recorded on another part of the earth.
Three days of blackness, without sun, moon, fire nor spark!

In the thirtieth year after the sign of Christ's birth was seen,
The wicked of the land executed a plot extremely mean.
The chief judge was murdered at the judgement seat.

Prologue: In my daily scripture series, my submission from Sat. night has not yet been rated. It tells the story of two groups of Israelite descendants in The Americas, who have a long history of bitter warfare with each other, but unite to face threats from The Gaddianton Robber Band. Since I am progressing through "The Book of Mormon; Another Testament of Jesus Christ", in order, these submissions, together, tell a bigger story, than individually. Altenitavely, the entire book can be obtained FREE at www.mormon.org
Today, I have reached 3rd. Nephi ch. 4

Lachoneus, the govenor, among his letters, received an important one.
