I grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and graduated from Hope College in Holland, Michigan. During the Korean conflict I served in the U.S. Navy. Emanuel and I have five children and twelve grand children--no great grand-kids yet. The initials EDRES are an acrostic of my name. I started writing poems when I was about nine years old and have continued writing them throughout the years.
The Poems of edres is a collection of easy-to-read poems written over a period of many years. Some are just one verse, some are longer. They range from Platypus to Gettysburg, some humorous, some are thought provoking, others are spiritual . You will find them delightful.
