RHYMES WITH LOVE
The Gift of Poetry
"Rhymes with Love" is a compilation of a lifetime of joyous tribute by the author to her family and friends.

The author attributes much of her inspiration and hard work to her parents, Dan and Martha McKillop, and to Jack Simpson, a kind and gentle soul who once said "we're here to help each other," giving true meaning and purpose to life. The author's poems reflect that sentiment, and bring into clear view what we all need to consider, and to do, as
