For a decade, between the late 1970s and the equally late 1980s, I was honored to publish several brief articles in the excellent equestrian magazine, The Chronicle of the Horse. Their superb editors also accepted, albeit with what reluctance they were too generous to admit, a number of my scribbled poems, more properly described as doggerel. This ebook is a compilation of those works.

I was force fed poetry in high school as I'm sure many people were. And like many, I ran screaming from the classroom. If that's what happened to you then I think you'll like this book. Modern free verse poetry on subjects that matter today, and stories from my blog, "The Window." Some are serious and some humorous. I think you'll find a little something for everyone here.
