This poem is inserted directly after the introduction to the manuscript.  It serves as a reason for putting my poems together in a book form.  This manuscript has not been submitted to anyone as of yet.  The 30 poems are not yet edited enough for me to send out.  I do have approximately 20 edited and rewritten poems. All of these were written inthe past few months.

I didn't intend to write a poem
I really thought I'd do a tome
and as I thought I'd take my time
I found I wrote instead in rhyme.

So, alas, what was I to do?
I wanted to write to please you too.
I took on the task of putting to verse
the things that I thought of
that wouldn't make them worse.

I wrote and I wrote and before I knew
I had 30 poems that suddenly grew.
But what should I do with so many rhymes?
Are they good enough to keep up with the times? 

I looked around and then I knew
I would put them in a book
and send them to you.
