I was born in the USA and served in the U.S. Army. I have traveled the world including Japan, Korea, Portugal, Italy, Canada as well as most of the lower 48 United States and Alaska. My favorite place is the Azores Islands in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
My hobbies include poetry, genealogy, crocheting, and knitting. My interests are motorsport, baseball, football (not soccer) , and basketball.

Richard McClellan Poems
Freedom, defined by force, to die for the cause, is what the soldier supports,
I remember when it used to be easy, I remember when it wasn't so hard, I remember what it felt like to be young, That's when life was fun!
In Love With A Stranger
How do I commence speaking, of someone that I not know? my heart aches for them, to be my fountain of love so,
River of Life
What if your life was a leaf on a tree, and one day a great wind blows, pulls your leaf from its limb, you flutter down to the stream below,
Pontius you condemned him so long ago, to spikes and the cross, with a crown of thorns, no baron are you,
Rain, Rain, wash over me, cleanse an purify me, your drops, so soothing n' smooth, lull me to sleep, content, not blue,
As I bundle up, the keys in my hand, I straddle my steel horse, No rein's to grab,
Soul mates, once found, bring out the best, While they're not perfect, They are to you,
A Lonely Heart via J. Partee
I am sitting all alone-tonight, weary, sad and blue. Thinkin of the past my dear, and how I'm missing you,
Nature at Its' Best via J. Partee
I walked along a country road, one sunny autumn day. And gazed upon the beauty, The woodland did portray.
Ode To Bitter Sweet Goodbye
Stabbed in my heart my blood's oozing out, drippin n' tricklin, it's poolin on the ground,
The Gears of Life
There is no reverse, in the transmission of life, while you can look back, an wish you were young again,
My love, I miss you so, fo' in my heart, the emotion of you fills me, [with you] wrapping up my soul,
Bread, Bread, a staff of life, taking your flour, an makin' some dough, with the dough, sticky and smooth,

defined by force,
to die for the cause,
is what the soldier supports,
defined by society,
to a grander cause,
the soldier come upon,
defined by religion,
Jesus died in its name,
put on the cross was he,
one the cross,
the other on the battlefield!
did they die in vain?
defined by song,
Jesus n' the soldier did sing,
your soul, one died for, the latter let freedom ring!
