DEBORAH KALB Q&A BOOK REVIEW

http://deborahkalbbooks.blogspot.com/2016/03/q-with-mary-nida-smith_87.html


I am thankful for this review for, "Heroes Beneath the Waves," with Deborah Kalb who now has her first children's book released. "Heroes Beneath the  Waves: Submarine Stories of the Twentieth Century", is written for the men who served, for families of submarine veterans to understand what it was like for  their love ones, and for students to understand war is not a game. My husband has two stories in the book. He never got to see the book as he passed away two day before the book was released.

Poem DOG SMARTS

Dog Smarts!
By Mary Nida Smith ©

Doggone dog
acts like a hog.
He eats everything
without thinking.
He torn up the house,
never touched the mouse.
I sat him down for a talk
he took me for a walk.
No one out smarts this dog.
The old boy lives in a fog
living his life his way.
I am still in a daze.
No telling what he’ll do
when I introduce the cat

… to you know who.

Country Roads

Country Detour
© Mary Nida Smith

The poor sap wasn’t mature
for being a chauffeur.
He was a city guy.
Country roads were a bore.

This wasn’t a tour.
He didn’t expect a detour
 in a roundabout way
up and down country roads.

He and his passenger were unsure
they would get beyond the detour
Zigzagging over county roads

that never appeared to end.
