: This book had its beginnings at an altitude of about 35,000 feet. The Author served for thirty-five years in the ministry, following which he became Director of a charitable foundation with interests in many parts of the world. As such, he spent a lot of time in airplanes. He discovered that writing light poetry was a challenging and enjoyable way to use the time spent in the air. The initial impetus for poems having to do with animals came from a grandchild who wanted a poem about a hippopotamus. When the author discovered that there were not many readily available on demand, he simply wrote one. The poems in this little volume are mostly whimsical, occasionally offering a homey moral for the reader to take or leave as he sees fit.
