Favorite Short Poems – 1

Readers over the years seem to especially like these poems. This is the first post in a new series. We began Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin in December 2009. I review my archives often.

You are welcome to reprint my poems with proper credit. Ideas are a bulletin board in a classroom, library, hospital, nursing home, etc. Thank you!

leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal

HARVEST

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

He that goeth forth and weepeth,
bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,

bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126: 5-6 (KJV)
