Alan L. Strang


Spring time is here with its sunshine and showers,
All nature is waking from its long winter sleep.
The gardens are blooming with beautiful flowers,
The song-birds are carolling melodies sweet.

This poem is in the public domain.

Alan L. Strang (1908 1919) was born in Spokane, Washington. His family moved to Redwood City, California when he was four years old. Highly intelligent but physically frail from birth, Alan wrote a number of poems as a child, many of which were collected in a book published the same year in which he died--at age 11.

I share in Larry's comments as well. To be remembered thanks to Jayne is a compliment to both. Short life but with sweet remembrances.

How lucky we are to be able to appreciate his observations still in 2024. Thank you for sending this poem.

So nice that Alan was able to appreciate natures beauty at so young an age.

So sad that he died so young! Prodigy is the right word!

Spring: hot, cold, snow, rain, wind, repeat.

I'm with you, Larry. That's one of the reasons I am putting my poems in published books and giving the books to everybody who isn't fast enough to get away from me. Being remembered will be a great accomplishment. Of course, John Wilkes Booth will be remembered, too. I hope what I leave behind is more positive. Alan had great talent. It is sad he was taken so young.

Strang is still with us thanks to Jayne. I hope I'm remembered a hundred years after my passing. Way to go, kid!
