Welcome to The Once Lost Wanderer. The name is derived from two poems: Amazing Grace by reformed slave trader John Newton, and All That is Gold Does Not Glitter by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Wanderer's Poetry

The following links are to original poems composed by Yours Truly

The Fading Realm
  • Something I wrote for my daughter
The Boy in the Moon
  • About my childhood, sort of. My aunt once commented that the boy riding the moon in the DreamWorks logo, reminded her of myself when I was a child. I was quite flattered, as I am very envious of that boy. My aunt's comment, and the logo inspired the poem.

The Love Bird
  • An antithesis to Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. I've always been fascinated by Poe's most famous poem and the unique meter. I've also always been a little depressed by its...depressing message. So, once upon an evening idle...I decided to emulate Poe's meter, but with a more hopeful message. And therefore with all due courtesy to the inimitable poet Poe, I offer my own creation.
Ode to Dr. Seuss
  • Exactly what the title says
