Biography of Dee Slater
My real name is Amanda, but but my friends call me Dee.I am an Asian-American high school science teacher.I write poetry only when the spirit moves me. These poems that I have submitted were written during significant times in my life. The one poem Questions seems different from the others that I written, and it is. Its irregular rhythm is supposed to reflect the irratic behavior. I encourage any suggestions to improve my work. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did writing them.
Dee Slater Poems
The Life Of A Season
Autumn bids a fond farewell As Sister Winter takes her place The colors of the trees in glory With Winter's white is soon replaced
As I stare upon you, Evening Star From the land where sorrows reign I envy you, oh star of night Who never has known pain
Why do you hurt me? What did I do? Did I say something mean? Did I offend you?
Amid the lushious green Near the lily white Reigns the Fairy Queen On a throne so bright
As I stare upon you, Evening Star
From the land where sorrows reign
I envy you, oh star of night
Who never has known pain
Star you shine with hope and peace,
For all the world to see.
Brightest of the stars tonight,
One wish might you grant me?
