93-Year-Old Releases Poetry About Life, Love, & Faith
Even at 93 years of age Martha Bible Smith is not afraid to delve into "the life of the mind". She ponders life's mysteries, pours her heart out through verse, and with grace and depth faces the aging process. In this volume, So,--her second book of poetry to be published--Smith poignantly and profoundly explores themes of family, friends, memories, aging, and even current events. Divided into four sections (So, Sew, Sow, and Soak), each grouping reflects Smith's fervor for life, her love of family and friends, and her deep faith in God.
Pride in being a Southerner is readily apparent in this lady born in Tennessee and reared in Mississippi. A graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi and Southern Methodist University, for 31 years Martha was a teacher and counselor. For 11 years she was an entrepreneur of antique jewelry on the square in Historic Downtown Garland, TX. She is a mother of two sons, a grandmother of four, and a great-grandmother of two. Her hobbies are reading, writing, and researching. The fourth "r" is reminiscing. Her late husband was Jasper C. Smith, jewelry in Dallas and Washington, D.C. Martha is 93 years young.
