About Ann D. Stevenson

I am married to a retired serviceman. We are lucky enough to have a lovely family, two children and four grandchildren. Now retired, but previously I worked as a teacher, then in a children’s home, finally a long time as a PA. As a child I spent a couple of years in America. Subsequently, thanks to my husband’s job, I have had a year in Rome and also in The Falkland Islands. UK homes have been in Scotland, Devon and London. Finally, settled in the Cotswolds, I enjoy gardening, playing bridge and walking the dog, plus reading and writing poetry. I have discovered that poetry can be very therapeutic when facing difficult times.

    With all my friends, those lost or gone astray;
    I'd travel back along familiar lanes,
    See all the signs which led me on my way.

    I see your star still shining bright
    amongst the others in the night,
    a sight so blessed, as by my eye
    your star now rests in symmetry.

I just wanted to thank whoever it was who marked my poem as a favourite. This is the first poem I have ever had published, so it is very good for morale, firstly to have it published at all and then to feel that someone has enjoyed reading it. Thank you, whoever you are.
