Making of a Poet: Reflections in Verse
Making of a Poet strikes a chord in all of us who enjoy writing—and reading—language which lifts our thoughts to dreams and hopes beyond the humdrum reality of life. When Deidre signed into a poetry course in junior high school, she found her perceptions and imaginings awakened to realms that widened her world to new enjoyment. Teachers and experiences in high school and college increased her appreciation of life and the world and friends about her. Recognition came in 1980 when “Self-Acceptance” appeared in Eddie Lou Cole’s World Treasury of Great Poems, which also included “Time to Dream” by her aunt Olive Jean Hope. Deidre’s verses have also appeared in Our Western World’s Greatest Poems (1983), Best-Loved Contemporary Poems (1979), The Dawn of Inspiration (1999), and Our Twentieth Century’s Greatest Poems (1982). Deidre continues to share life and inspiration with friends in “The Poetry Circle” of writers near her home in northern California. Her story can be your story too.
