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.

Joy beyond compare.

A sweet smell of grass I whiff through my window,
As the birds are chirping, a precious gift of the morning.
The branches of the trees that sway gently in the breeze

The alligators are getting very aggressive,
And you better not go near the cubs of a bear.
The mocking birds are chirping loudly at night

I looked into the eyes of a man who
looked old and worn.
His clothes were quite tattered
