About Anne Pollock

My background is in classical singing, and I concertized for many years until my retirement. I loved reading poetry from a young age and began writing my own for my family’s enjoyment. A romantic at heart, I like to write poems that tell a story to hopefully entertain and lift one out of the daily cares of the here and now. My family encouraged me to share my poems on the Internet, and I'm very grateful to have found Family Friend Poems, which provides a wonderful platform for poets everywhere.

    Christmas Memories With My Family

    in Christmas Poems

    Oh, to capture Christmas
    In the palm of one's hand;
    To clasp, like a jeweled strand,
    Every memory dear and grand.

    Awake, little crocus, spring is nigh!
    Let me kiss the slumber from your eye.

    The night is o'er, embrace the dawn!

    Poem About Winter Sprites

    in Nature Poems for Kids

    There's magic in every snowflake,
    A gem of frozen light;
    And who should better know than I,
    A little winter sprite?

    A Wintry Sleigh Ride

    in Christmas Poems

    Sleighing through the forest
    On a late December evening,
    To my sister tightly clinging
    In our flying wintry bed.

    A Pirate Haunting

    in Halloween Poems

    Shiver me timbers, rattle me bones,
    it's All Hallows' Eve, and I'm on me way home.
    Home to me wifey, me Katy, me best--
    been three hundred years since they laid us to rest.

I have been offline due to friends visiting and would have replied sooner, but your words of encouragement, including visualizing a book, made my day--thank you so much! I have read all of your poems, too, heart-touching, and will look forward to more. You have a gift for conveying the way to deal with life experiences that we can all identify with and find comfort in. I also enjoyed reading your bio, and will try to submit my own soon. Thanks again, Ann; nice to meet a fellow poet!
