I'm a member of The Massachusetts State Poetry Society and The North Shore Poets Forum in Beverly, Ma. The main subject of my poems is the natural world. Some of my favorite contemporary poets are Mary Oliver, Donald Hall, W,S, Merwin, and Gary Snyder. Also among my favorite poets are Robert Frost, William Butler Yeats, Rabindranath Tagore, and the English Romantic poets, Keats, Shelley, and Wordsworth. I have published five books, Watching The Swans Circle The Pond, Where The Night Sky Can Be Seen, Following The Moon Into The Mountains, Going Back To The Green World and The River Still Sings In Winter (New and Selected Poems).
