2021 Series at Poems From Psalms And Nature

At Poems From Psalms And Nature, I began a new series on the theme of Mercy and Gratitude, which will feature my poems inspired by thrift stores, with links to the store sites. And creative notes in general.

Today’s post is Poetry Book by Madeleine L’Engle, which also lists the posts so far in the series.

We live in Wisconsin – the Midwest, USA. And I buy used books from other places online, as well as places in our area. So many good deeds, and books are shared with more people. Wonderful.

always beauty

after the leaves fall
and the days grow short
holiday lights begin

small town main streets
and country roads

November skies and fields
have a stark and simple
beauty

when winter settles in
for a long time
after Christmas

the light in January
is already changed
from now

Ellen Grace Olinger
The poem is from 2017.
