Ruth Nott

I am retired, living in Chiefland, FL and have found poetry to be a valued part of my life. My poetry reflects my faith and values and a deep love for God and family. My latest work is a children’s picture book titled “New Friend True Friend” and is available (in addition to my many books of poetry) on

My work has been published in various anthologies, small press magazines, Poetry Canada magazine, The Quilter magazine, The Joy of Living Poetry Collection by Hazel Street Publications, Sea Oats Review, Mahogany and Molasses, Verse-a-tility, Anthologies of the Florida State Poets Assoc., Inc., Of Poets and Poetry, The Easterner, Family Matters (an anthology by several family members), various other newsletters, and several poetry websites, blogs, and groups as well as my own eleven books of poetry.

I most often write rhyming poetry and have had to force myself to occasionally write those that do not rhyme just for the fun of the challenge. My poems are spiritual, or romantic, or amusing, or occasionally seem to beam in from some far alien universe.

New Friend – True Friend

New Friend – True Friend

Genre: Children's Books

New friends don't have to be just like you. They can be black, white, red... or maybe even green.
