About Raelene J. Elliss

Many years ago, Raelene J. Elliss’ brother passed away in a drowning accident at a popular surf beach in South Australia. Her heart was broken, and the strain of the grief was unbearable. She had no idea how to express her feelings about that tragic loss.
One very warm evening, as she lay awake, unable to sleep due to the worry in her life, she wrote down her feelings on a scrap of paper. Out of that scrawling came her first poem. That was in 1986, and now more than 30 years down the track, Raelene has written more than 200 poems. They have mainly been for her family in celebration of milestones, birthdays, and Christmas.
She developed a knack for picking up a word, phrase, or very funny situation that would inspire a poem. She calls herself the Poetic Rambler and signs her poems as such. Raelene hopes that her poems bring joy and inspiration to whoever reads them.

    Prayers and songs sung
    To praise His holy name
    A nativity scene began
    The scene we've come to claim

    Hold it near
    Wipe away
    The things we fear

Hilarious, exactly what happens. It's a conspiracy against to pervert the course of poetic license. Thanks, I needed a good laugh.
