About Me and My Poetry

I wrote a poem for my daughter and new son-in-law and read it at their wedding reception in 1997. People have been encouraging me ever since. I try to write up-beat and happy poetry. My poetry has been in many anthologies, newspapers, church bulletins,etc. I won a small contest once. I self-published some small(4x5)books with about 16 poems in each that can be used as greeting cards. I include an envelope for mailing. Check them out on my FB page under Jean Magill Gorney.

I’ve worried and worried till I’ve felt spent.
Not one iota of worry changed what came and went.

Floating on a cloud I’m looking down upon the earth.
I’m running through the corn fields high above the stalks,

Now needing the right hat to look cute
