TALKING TO THE WORLD FROM PAN AM’S CLIPPERS

GRANDMA CHAPMAN’S POETRY

ADVENTURES WITH MR. WIGUDGEM

SLAVES ON HORSEBACK

IN MEDIUS RES (IN THE MIDDLE OF THINGS)

I’ve decided to launch this new blog in the middle of Grandma Chapman’s Poetry.  For those of you who have been listening to my weekly podcasts, I am still writing book 5 in the Mr. Wugidgem Children’s Stories, and I’m about two-thirds of the way to the end.  For the next couple of weeks I’ll be reading my Grandmother’s poetry, which she wrote between 1917 and 1969.  Then I will switch to reading from my Father’s book, Talking To The World From Pan Am’s Clippers.

GRANDMA CHAPMAN’S FAMILY

As a departure from my ordinary practice, I am including the text of my Grandmother’s poetry so you can read along with me.  Today’s Episode is entitled A Happy Home.

A HAPPY HOME

BY FLORENCE CHAPMAN

God bless this new home,

And all who here abide,

Guide them when they roam,

And may no ill betide.

Keep them happy and content,

Trusting that all is fair,

Wherever they may be sent,

By land or sea or air.

Written in December, 1968 at the Anchorage Motel, Cold Spring Harbor, New York
