I have published four poetry collections entitled 'Idle Thoughts', 'Reflections', 'Poetry On Tap' and 'Cherry on Top'. See http://gigipagano.wixsite.com/mysite for my latest poetry collection “Cherry on Top” and other publications.

Hello Di. Thanks for the kind words,much appreciated, but basically what I have done is 'borrow' some great lines by great poets to create a new poem with which, in all modesty, I was quite pleased. The Notre Dame fire was the catalyst that made...Read full comment
