I was born in CT but raised in New Smyrna Beach, FL. The first poems of mine selected for publication appeared in the now defunct literary magazine De Novo (Tampa, FL) in the mid-'50s.

A thousand feathers for each wing,
Attached with wax and sap and string;
Leather straps to hold them tight,

With care, I think ...
