This is a poem I wrote years ago in answer to a friend’s poem describing where she was from. I had planned to include it in all of the books of the Coeur du Bayou Trilogy since they take place in the fictional town of Cypress Point. However, once I started writing the second book, the characters took me on a different path. Mid way through the first draft, I was reminded of another poem I had written years ago before I ever met my husband. Not only does it fit this story perfectly, but it reminded me that I have been writing for a very long time. I can’t wait to share the poem and the second book of my trilogy with everyone.
