Precious Girls

Artist Statement

I met Nan at one of her amazing Brookdale adult ed classes, and was fortunate to participate in several of her small writing groups. I am a struggling, yet undaunted, aspiring poet.

~I sent this poem to Nan after her beautiful Jesse left us, hoping to make her laugh. I actually do have a dog named Mary Catherine, (Molly), but any similarity to any dogs or nuns, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
