Nancy Ellen Crossland Poems



My life has been filled with blessings and self discoveries. My first book has been published: "Within These Branches: Poetry of Life and Nature". Would never have dreamed it could happen. I am in process of another book of poetry and a novel. It is never too late! I have a wonderful family: husband, 2 sons 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Poetry has always been a great interest to me since I was a teenager. I am so thankful for this website, where creativity abounds. I feel energized and passionate about writing and anticipate the unique poems I read. Poetry is forever around us in countless forms. I also enjoy various types of music and play the piano. I particularly enjoy the beauty and magic of nature.
