In the decade of the Sixties I wrote 12 poems.

I am thirteen years old when I begin writing comedic verse for my classmates' joy in eighth grade. Some of these were lost. I included what small number I salvaged with my first serious collection in 1971. The poems here represent no emotional force that I know of, however the very first verse, "A Chlorophyll Filled Death" was rewritten in 1971 as one of the "Depression" series of poems.
I am now fourteen, entering high school. I still remember writing "The Leprechaun" even now, twelve years later.
As I turn fifteen, and experience the end of a very turbulent decade, I write "The Pedestal". I begin to think I shall continue writing poetry more seriously in the future.
