Biography of Donald Cochrane

A lifelong avid reader who decided to try his hand at short stories and poetry in his late fifties. Gave up on poetry when he realized that he didn't care for contempory poetry and most new poets don't care for traditional poems. Decided to give it one more try. Updates


The forest giants tower, unforgiving,
shutting off all sight of sun or sky.
The mighty granite mountains, cold, forbidding,
echoing the lonely eagle cry.
The frozen steams, where once the water tumbled,
now gripped in winters' unrelenting hand.
The force of nature’s power makes one humbled.
She decides who falls, or who will stand.
