How fitting that my 200th post should honor the first poet I read on my own as a small child (after having A Child's Garden of Verses read to me before I could read it myself.) Happy Birthday, Robert Louis Stevenson!

"This is the verse you grave for me:
'Here he lies where he longed to be;
Here is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.'"

Famous in Shreveport!

I was recently very pleased to learn that four of my poems were chosen to be displayed on an electronic message board outside the main branch of the Shreveport, Louisiana, Public Library. They will also be posted on the library's web site and e-mailed to library patrons.

I am thrilled to have my work appear in an accessible, public venue in the home state of my maternal grandfather, Ted Denham. I only wish he were still around to see this.

This post is number 199. Back soon with number 200!
