She grew up on horses living on the family farm in Western Arkansas.
Margie has always had a passion for horses. She also has always had a passion for poetry.
She has written several poems over the years. My favorite is Early Morning Cup of Coffee.
EARLY MORNING CUP OF COFFEE
I'm sitting on the front porch in my swing
It's as if I can see almost everything
The birds are eating berries from the mulberry tree
They sing so sweetly, as if they're singing just for me
Two red birds just walked across the lawn
And 4 squirrels been playing out there since early dawn
They chase each other round and round
They scamper up a tree, and then scamper down
Sometimes they jump from limb to limb
I never get tired of watching them
Sometimes I see a Mother deer and her fawn
They seem so content eating grass from my lawn
They keep their distance, but still they can see
Me watching them and them watching me
All in all it's a great place to be
early in the morning, while having my coffee.
