I was born in Jerome Idaho in 1940. The oldest of seven children. I have been “married to an angel” for 51 years (see poem of same title in “Love” catagory). We have 4 children, 13 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren.
I have always enjoyed writing poetry. I wrote my first poem when I was eight years old for the prettiest girl in my class. It got a big smile so I was inspired to write more. I wrote the poem “Broken Chain” at the passing of a family member, and “Teardrops” when we lost a grandchild. I have written, and copyrighted, over400 poems on many different subjects, and for many occasions. Some are licensed and can be found on wall plaques, woven throws, cups, music boxes, bookmarks, and headstones. At the encouragement of family members I have started this website where many can be found in 40+ categories. I have published 3 books of poetry, and am working on my fourth.
I hope my thoughts, put to rhyme, helps to remind us of the importance of God, family, friendship, country, love, compassion, and humor in our lives. You are welcome to use any of the poetry on this site for personal non-profit, use as long as you credit me as author and include this website address. rontranmer.com
