I live in rural New Hampshire with my wife  (Tracie) and two Mini Dachshunds. The kids are grown and on their own. Tracie is an intensive needs special education teacher (K to 2) and I am a retired insurance executive and attorney, and now a house husband. I love to cook, but don't much care for lawn work- so it gives me an excuse to try writing poetry!

In college I majored in English with an emphasis on poetry (no composition). Most of my courses were on the Romantic poets but I had the wonderful opportunity to study modern poetry under Richard Eberhart. We'd meet at his home on Monday evenings, his wife would serve cider and cake donuts, and he would share his memories of Yeats, Auden, Frost, Gibran and many others. He loved the poetry of GM Hopkins, and would read with vigor the last six lines from "Gods Grandeur". I loved those days and always wanted to try writing poem, but never did. 

 Well, it's now been almost 50 years, so it's time to start! If I could write one poem of note, it would be like Frost's Birches. But if I could write two, the second would be like Tennyson's Ulysses.
