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.

Although I'm under your wing.

My body stirs as the peace of night wanes.
Thoughts are adrift as my body slowly moves with pains.
\Twisting and turning and at last my eyes open wide.

High on the mountain top orange glowed.
In the stream below a boat is being rowed.
\Up ahead a fish jumped in an arc

Pink bows and ribbons surround her little face.
A dress filled with ruffles and oodles of lace.

Born in the forties and sometimes called naive,
I respect our soldiers for this land they have freed.
I honor God and give Him my praise,

The pain on his face shows heavy in his eyes
Time after time as we say our goodbys

I think of warm and gentle hands
Of a passionate mind that understands
I think of times when we're alone
