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.

Moving away from my family and friends.
Days are long, like having no ends.

Did you ever watch an ant toiling away so hard,
Trying to get from one place to another in your yard?
 
He often follows a long line as the leader knows the way,
And not for very long is he in one place to stay.
 
As he scurries along over hot concrete and tar,
He never really seems to get all that far.
 
His load is so large that you are simply amazed.
And if you step near him, he surely will run craised.
 
His hill grows bigger and bigger with dirt piling about
As for the other ants, their job is flinging it out.
 
The food he will bring to strengthen the force
Will be welcomed indeed; that is, of course,
 
If he wasn’t snatched up while heading back to the Queen
And forever and nevermore remain to be seen.
