Mingled by moon-driven tides,
beautiful cumulus rises grandly
over waves of grain-raising fields;
dwellers, in small-farm worlds, are pleased.
Alan McAlpine Douglas , father to 5 and grandfather to 3, has been writing poetry since 1993. His idiosyncratic voice has produced thousands of poems in this time, and he finds it quite hard to stay serious, even when he means to. He also enjoys writing spoofs, using well-known poems or songs like Clementine or In the Ghetto as his models.
