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.

And in the box we kept ice for our food.

A hill can take you up to a wonderful sight,
Or can lead you back down so fast you have fright.

We walk down some steps deep into the earth.
The air is so damp and so is the ground.
A whole different world we see has its birth.

Rubbing and scrubbing on a board in a tub.
This is really, really tough work, by gosh!

The alarm clock rang and I push for a snooze.
Then I remember if you snooze, you may lose.

Then into a beautiful creature he’s changed.
So silently and peacefully he’s brought
