books and music

books and music
from over the years
live on these shelves
even if I don’t
reread or listen again
somehow their
healing influence
is in these words

I enjoyed donating some boxes of books and poetry journals this year, and plan a Christmas donation with a few music CDs.

From Psalm 126

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)
