This book was written , by my mother Evelyn Patten, who recently passed away. I compiled this book after finding a collection of poems written throughout her life as a tribute to her. They are beautiful pieces that brought a flood of memories and tears and I hope that others will enjoy as they give that beautiful touch of humanity as only mothers can.
I hope it inspires others with their life as well.
I began life in Vermont where I wrote my first poems. One receiving a national poetry prize. I traveled west, where I became a mother, married a man in the Air force where we then went to Australia. Where I raised my family and began my adventures in other areas of life. I wrote spasmodically throughout my life and this is a collection of some of my poems. My Daughter compiled them into a book after I passed over with me keeping a watchful eye. I hope you enjoy them too!
