hosta and daylilies

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

hosta and daylilies
goldenrod grows too
I sit in silence
and think about
what needs
to be done now
and what can wait
until Autumn and Winter

Years ago, an older friend said, “You learn to save some things for Winter.”

Poetry Book by Madeleine L’Engle

A few years ago, Karl and I went to the Richardson Hospice Resale Store in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin.

I bought A Cry Like a Bell, by Madeleine L’Engle (1987, Harold Shaw Publishers). This book is poetry. Years ago, I read and gave my copy away.

When I saw the book at the resale store, I thought maybe it was now being given back to me – that it would be good to read again. And I plan to read a few poems today.

Quiet Winter Gardens

quiet winter
gardens

resting under
light snow

am in no hurry
for spring (many
winter projects)

yet feel it in the
welcome growing light
of longer days

and looking out
my window

I know where
the snowdrops
will bloom
