It’s time for another Story Time Friday post during Poetry Month! In this post I’m pleased to share two poems from new-to-me poet, Lyn Crain.
Lyn came to me early on in my search for poets to feature for National Poetry Month and as always I was happy to let her hope aboard. Spreading the word about unknown (again, unknown-to-me) writers is part of the driving force behind my blog. It’s part of why A Life Among the Pages has been able to keep bringing new and exciting content for years…and today’s no different.
Please enjoy Lyn’s two poems here, and if you enjoy them I hope you continue on to her website for more original poetry. And don’t be shy. Comments are always welcome here on the blog! Just keep it polite since we’re sivilized (as Huck Fin would say) adults 😉
About the Author:
I’m 60, avid reader of poetry and writer of poetry about my life experiences. At my age, trust me there have been many. My goal with my upcoming book, In My Shoes is to make a difference for women by raising awareness about domestic violence in an unusual poetic way. Silence Enables, I cannot be silent.
My greatest poetic influences are Billy Collins, Sylvia Plath, Ron Rash, Kim Addonizio, Charles Bukowski, Ann Bradstreet, Anne Sexton, W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot. These poets are my heroes.
I am happily remarried to my best friend Vic and we live with three felines Purryl Bailey, W.B. Yeats and Macavity Eliot in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. I am blessed with four children and seven grandchildren.
