內容簡介

  Young person is blessed with talent for creative future.
  Life is a blank sheet of paper, demanding best picture.
  Nature nourishes creatures, never lasts forever.
  Nature’s longevity is emulated with timeless file.

  Young talents seek joy and hope for sparkling future.
  Relaxation enhances healthy life: “ Read a poem; Sing
  a song, where excitement belongs; Joy comes along!”

  Every child wants to be successful in early life. Yet, very few, even precocious genius, can reach pinnacle at prime of life without a mentor or school education.

  Thomas Edison, iconic inventor and entrepreneur, was deaf but self assured, inquisitive, paying little attention in class. After twelve weeks of schooling, his mother, a trained teacher, took him home for private education. Edison developed avid reading, writing and mathematics proficiencies to become self–educated electrical engineer and telegrapher.

  Among 1,093 inventions, his first motion picture camera/film patent gave rise to movie industry. His light bulb invention kindled great hope for replacing flickering lantern with bright, incandescent light, albeit powered with expensive DC battery. Edison never admitted failure: “I have not failed, I just found 10,000 ways”.

  Nicola Tesla, Edison’s employee for short span, Serbian American engineer, invented AC electric supply system; His novel invention revolutionized efficient power transmission, and mass communications.

  All successful entrepreneurs, scientists, artists, musicians, educators, philosophers, investors, and politicians had developed their career paths at young ages. They seldom doubted their ability to succeed during school years or at training periods. They were keen in planning future with self-motivation, and hard work with unwavering perseverance. Young people are blessed with talents, dynamic energy, charismatic personality, and high hope for their achievements.

作者簡介

Francis S. Cheng


  As a young boy, I imitated Edison’s creative spirit for dismantling musical boxes. Regrettably, I discovered nothing, but ruined coo-coo clock, phonograph, and Bell telephone. Those were not allowed to tinker. Getting grounded was most humiliating, remorseful; I had to shape up and became discipline in pursuing quintessential educations.

  Francis holds PhD in Chemistry, and DSc in Chemical Engineering. He had postdoctoral training; worked for many industries including Exxon, Monsanto, and Vanderbilt Chemicals. He also taught graduate and undergraduate chemistry courses at University of Bridgeport, as adjunct associate professor, for years.

  He took children story-writing courses, and attended Faxon Poetry sessions for hobbies, and learned how to write poetry of nature, health and science, and book on foods and drugs.

Acknowledgement

  I am deeply indebted to the encouragement of many published poets at FAXON Poetry Club. Their kind suggestions provided fresh ideas for me to write poems on health, science, and nature.

  I am most grateful to Marcia Lewis, former Faxon manager, for introducing me to the Faxon Poetry Club.

  My sincere thanks to editors Steve Olechna, June Mandelkern and advisors: JoAnne Bauer, Pamela Guinan, Camilla Hynes, Cheryl Hale, Christopher Jay, Andy Weil, Dave Mello, Dave May, Andrew Hook, Ray Marafino, and Krishna Parthasarathy for their dedication in reviewing anthologies throughout the Perspectives chapbooks publications.

  Appreciation is also extended to Graphic artists John Hsu, and Barry Liu, for perfecting the cover designs, and to Tom Nicotera and
Prof. Tsoung Lee for advice on poetry enrichments.

  Lastly but not the least, my sincere thanks to lovely wife, Jean, who endured unexpected torment when I had contracted cancer, that nearly obliterated hope and support for children.
Jean took sole responsibility for bread and butter, in restoring the norm.

  My gratitude to all beloved friends, to my lovely wife and family, remains.
