Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

Taking a Holiday Hiatus

Seriously, it’s time for a break. Happy Holidays!

I’ve projects to work on
And people to see.
With Christmastime coming,
I want time for me.

So, friends, fill these two months
With holiday cheer.
I’m off on vacation—
I’ll see you next year!

A reverie. Can you dig it? I knew you could…

Good on a sandwich,
Good with eggs,
Good on salads
And pizza breads.

As a comfort food
It stands alone—
ALL good providers
Bring it home!

Early Snow

Nobody knows when the early snows will come.
Unpredictable jet streams swirl and rage
Across the northern latitudes, and some
Surprises always come from just offstage.

The early snows have come in force this year,
Unexpectedly blanketing field and farm,
Interstate and country road, with fear
That global warming trends may cause us harm.

Still, as we watch the early snows come down
And dread the certain back pain shoveling brings,
Let’s also spare a moment for the sound
Of happy children frolicking like kings.
