The book is a compilation of works produced over the last 25 years. The first, Chesapeake, was a verse written in honor of author's mother, Frances, and was written within three months after her passing on Christmas Eve, 1978. Response from that verse by friends, family and others urged the author to continue his efforts in writing verse. Continuing encouragement and requests from many people kept the process going with the writing of memorial verses, and verses honoring people, places, and times. Influence of family, especially grand children, caused the author to write verses inspired by them and their activities. Among the persons who greatly influenced the final publishing of this book is author's wife, Charlene, who encouraged this endeavor, even when the author's own confidence wavered. It is she, as well as other friends and family who are the real publishers because they felt the world could use some "Quiet Times."
