Edith D. Plettner


“Ever since the age of four, when our housekeeper sat me on her lap and read to me from 'A Child's Garden Of Verses' by Robert Louis Stevenson, I have been attuned to the rhyme and rhythm of poetry,” explains published poet Edith D. Plettner.

“My desire in writing poetry,” she continues, “is that my words connect with my readers. The beauty of the seasons, the joys and sorrows of love and life – may my readers know that another person experiences the same feelings. Then, although we may never meet, our hearts are united and we are one.”

In her 20's – with a map on her lap – Edith left her Indiana home and drove to California. There she found work at EGW Publishing Co., Inc. (egw.com) where she served as copy editor, proofreader, and advertising manager for six national craft magazines. She worked there nine years.

When she learned that her father had died suddenly of a massive heart attack, Edith became “extremely homesick, almost a physical pain,” and returned to her Midwestern roots.

She now resides in Northwest Ohio where, on occasion, her brother, sister, nephews, and families hear an explosive:


“Oh, that's just Edith again, thinking about us and bursting with pride.”

Her writings include: Beauty In Bryan (A Poetic Glimpse Of Northwest Ohio), Cherries In The Snow (Poems For Every Season), Feminine Rhyme (Love Poems), and Spirit, Live In Me, Volumes 1 and 2. She also co-authored the color-illustrated children's story Mrs. Rabbit and Mrs. Elephant.
