More Description

Mist Upon the Pond is a collection of the author's favorite poems, some published, many unpublished, but all aimed squarely at the heartstrings, the bootstraps or the funny bone. As the author says, ." . . the form ever-changing, like the mist upon the pond . . ." A variety of poetic forms and styles, from humorous haiku to heart-wrenching historical narratives, is in this collection. The author's love of the natural world and her passion for history perme-ate many of the offerings, as does her deep, abiding faith in God and love of family. There are light-hearted children's poems and tongue-in-cheek glimpses of sports. Mist Upon the Pond is a collection of eighty-five poems written by the author over the last six years. They are presented here to enter-tain, encourage, amuse, inspire, give comfort and provoke thought. A lifelong resident of Mechanicville, New York, Sandra E. McBride is the mother of six grown children and grandmother of sixteen. She and her hus-band, Tom, reside on the farm that has been in the McBride family for nearly a century. Her childhood dream of becoming a creative writer was put on hold while she reared her fam-ily. Then, at age 55, she enrolled in a writing course at the Institute of Children's Literature and began to pursue that dream in earnest. "You're never too old to chase the dream," she says. Her poetry has appeared in five June Cotner anthologies, in Once Upon a Time, NEWN, Mail Call Journal and online at historyonline.net and Magic Lark Journal. She has published several short stories, and has won numerous awards for her writing. In April 2004, she was honored by her hometown library as their featured poet for National Poetry Month.
