Rockville, MD – What better way to mark a special event than a poem written for the occasion? Maryland-based poet and author Sherri Council offers the opportunity to tap her talents and add extra enchantment to any commemoration with a customized poem.

The author of the collection of poetry, prose and signature ‘affirmations' entitled
Life's Pearls: Wisdom for a Meaningful Life says "it's a delight and a privilege to turn the rich emotion that surrounds life's milestones' into poetic expression.

Council has written customized poems for weddings and anniversaries throughout the Washington DC area and as far away as Florida.
