early hours

early hours
of quiet and poetry
gardens overflow
and if some winter
my mind forgets
my heart will know

Ellen Grace Olinger

Summer Poems

roses in the sun
some ending
some beginning
and some in full bloom
good to grow older

wildflowers grow
by fields of corn
words of poetry
uplift my soul
keep me strong

hosta
blue chicory
Queen Anne’s lace
and daylilies
July in Wisconsin
