About Anne Pollock

I have a background in singing, beginning as a youngster in my church choir, then later majoring in voice and singing semi-professionally for many years up to my retirement. Writing poems to share with my family came later, and I continue to find joy in the creative process of poetry writing. A romantic at heart, and inspired by writers of my favorite period, the Victorian era, 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.

    A Child Invites Her Mother Into Her Magical World.

    There are fairies in the garden!
    Mother, I saw their silver wings
    Flit across the yellow phlox,
    I even heard them sing!

    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

    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.
