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.

Keep your eye on the beast that lies within us all.
It always wants to get out if you listen to its call.

Ever brought a memory back to mind that has imagine-a-sized?
The crows were only 200, but now are a 1000 in your eyes.

Oh, for a gentle breeze
for this oppressive heat to ease.

Company's here, days and nights seem never to end.
Late night talks into early rises blend.

Hoping for a day of sunshine,

The moon was never so fascinating;
The sun is aglow with warm light
