Marion Carmichael has always loved writing,
although she doesn't know why.
She knows that time is running out
That now she really must try
To find the time, to find her voice
To find that happy patchwork hat
Which fits well for all occasions
As: mother, lover, teacher, friend, sister, grandma, mum-in-law, wife
Yet has a ribbon bright and jaunty
Which lets her write; be sinister, flighty or crude
With the aid of the hat
She writes poems, stories
And continues to work on the NOVEL.
Marion's poems appear in Benchmarks, Rewriting the Map, and Island Voices. Her poem New Bridge at Newtown reflects her love of a very special place on the Isle of Wight.
