T’was the week before Xmas and in the past year
so many things happened to cause me great cheer.
Three lots of edits, round after round,
with Starling, Ella, and Charlotte, finally sound.
Starling, #1 Kindle with a small price drop
moved to #1-100 Australian historical literature after a skippy hop.
Now four months later, Starling is holding her place
and I’m managing two puzzling pages with my Face.
Not easy was the winter bathroom renovation,
but I managed before I astounded a book club with my amazing oration.
Not bad for a confirmed introvert with a rusty voice
but knowing my poetry needs more hooks
better is my choice to rejoice this amazing year with an offer for four more books!!
