Patricia’s Poems – blog of 95 year old poet
Hello – I was wondering if you would put this notice below up on
you’re International Poetry Talk e-list.  And if you would mind asking
your list members if they would visit the blog  and leave their comments… and  also if they  would fwd. this notice out to their poetry/writing networks.
Thanks if you can help me get this around, and even if for some
reason you can’t… J

Patricia’s Poems……..                                                                                         
Patricia is a 95 year old poet, originally from England , who has
lived in Vancouver since 1942. 
        Orphaned when her father died from respiratory complications
 after he gave his gas mask to someone in WW1, she was
raised in a series of either orphanages or relatives’ homes.
        She went to teacher’s college, then headed out to a job in
Bermuda in 1935, met the man who would become her only
husband, married him in 1938 and went to live in Peru .
       Mid-WW2 British expats there were sent to Canada , and she
voyaged up the Pacific Coast in 1942 in a convoy of ships under
blackout. She had three children and eventually had to leave
her husband their father. And here she has been ever since.
 
At 95, Patricia rarely leaves the house nowadays. But her daughter
has put some of her poems up in a blog called Patricia’s  Poems — 
so if you have a moment to go and read some, and leave some 
comments, her daughter will print them out (Patricia doesn’t 
have internet or a computer).
She would very much enjoy getting some comments and
feedback on her poetry.
