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
Why do you hurt me?
What did I do?
Did I say something mean?
Did I offend you?
Why do you beat me?
I really must know,
Have I acted obsene
Or do you want your anger to show?
Why do you treat me
