Biography of Mitzie Thorne

I was born in a small hospital at a place in the hills of Trelawny called Ulster Spring. I was raised in an even smaller area, called Joe-Hut. As a little girl, I recited poems in both church and school. I even participated in school poetry competitions on the local level.

Years have passed and I am still a lover of poetry. However, I take the time to create my own poems from the heart. I am now a teacher who is using poetry as one of the mediums to help my elementary students foster a love for writing. It is my hope that as they are able to discover the poet within themselves, that they, too, will be inspired to write.

I Am

I am the deep blue waters of the Caribbean sea
So don't you dare try to decipher me
When golden sunrays filter through my curtain
I am warm and strong
Strong enough to move you along
With just a little help from the wind
As she pushes against my body she's my friend
She tickles my soul as she makes big and small waves from my skin
And as my rival she cohorts with the rain to bring me pain
