My writing career has just begun. After being a teacher, I wanted some new fun. I like to read and hop around. My fencing career did not make me muscle bound. I live where heat and humidity is a summer's day. But reading science fiction is certainly okay. My pets can growl and purr for me. They have the knack to help me be as happy as can be! Thanks for reading this little rhyming poem. I wrote it using my little metronome. Have a great day everyone!
