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.

Usually, I'm a placid woman, being kind,
And I give most of my troubles to God,
But ill manners so often really irk me

To the bride and groom who are so happy today
May there remain more joy than sorrow along the way.
The best advise I can offer you both as a Mother

With clean sheets and pillows under my head.
The sweet smell of softener settles me down
