What Time Is It?

and other poems

Marcia Lee Anderson

This is a book of poems written by my great-aunt Marcia. She is the sister of my mother's father and is not an Oursland. I wanted to honor her by making her poety available here for all to enjoy.

These poems were published in a book in 1997. I've included all of the information in the hardcopy in case you would like a copy. The print is not included since I have not received permission to put it online yet.
