Let me introduce myself!
I am Gloria Dianne.
Named after Mom's paper dolls,
Sure glad I wasn't born a man!

People who knew me way back when,
Say "I didn't know you were a poet."
I answer "Well,neither did I!
And my feet don't even show it!"

You see, one day, many moons ago,
While hanging clothes out on the line,
Everything that my children said,
Came back to me in rhyme.
So I ran back into the house,
And sat down with paper and pen.
And created my very first poem,
I called it "Make Pretend".

Where this talent came from,
I really do not know.
I've had no formal training,
I just make it up as I go.

Putting my thoughts in words,
Is difficult at times.
I find I can best express myself,
When I put my words in rhyme.
Some say fate's been unkind to me,
Over my many, many years.
Yet, I always seem to find a way.
To find laughter through my tears.

I can put things in prospective,
Through my poetry.
And I might go as far to say
That it's been my therapy!

Everything that I write about,
Is based on something true.
And truth IS stranger than fiction!
"Ode to a Toaster" proves it to you!
I know that you will enjoy
Each poem in my collection.
And with the help from sister "B",
Our site is near perfection!

Some poems may make you laugh out loud!
That's what they're meant to do.
And some just may make you cry,
And you might need a hankie or two!

Thank you for visiting our site.
And we hope you understand,
That is was created just for you,
By Barbara and Gloria Dianne!













Now that you know about
My older sister, Glory,
I thought it was time you knew
All about me!


There really isn't much to tell.
I was married pretty young.
I have four great children,
And now, four precious grandsons!


Life was pretty easy when
The children were all young.
Hubby had a good job,
So, I could stay at home.


But life is full of changes,
And doesn't always go to plan.
So, when hubby became ill,
Off to work I ran!

My hobby is... you guessed it!
The great, WEB-TV.
It was a christmas gift.
My daughter gave it to me!


After playing with it
For a few months or so,
I was ready for a web site,
But on what? I didn't know.

Then along came the answer.
"Glory's poems!" I thought.
Asked her, she said "perfect!,
Since on this I must be taught"


So, here we are,
The team of Glory and "B"
Presenting to you,
Gloria Dianne's Poetry!


I know you will enjoy it,
From the beginning to the end,
It was created for you with love.
By me and my new best friend!






MY MEMORY BOUQUET



When someone touches me
In any special way,
I call these gestures flowers,
And add them to my memory bouquet.

A flower can be anything,
A kind thought, word, or deed.
And oh, such beauty blossoms
From just one little seed!

Give me my flowers
While I can see
The love in your eyes
As you give them to me.

Speak words of kindness
While I can hear,
Let loved ones gather 'round me
While I am still near.

If I have touched your life
In any special way,
Please, don't wait until I'm gone.
Give me my flowers today!
