You may also wish to visit Poems For Bulletin Boards. I enjoy the different WordPress.com themes, and presenting poems in different ways. Readers are welcome to use my poems in their lessons and art, with proper credit (my name and the blog).

Thank you,

Creative Note and Poems

As I reprint verses from the Psalms, and proofread the posts, I learn more about the language arts.

For example, yesterday’s post:

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

Psalm 126: 5

There is comfort, emotional and spiritual.

Then I also think, “What a beautiful sentence.”

If you wish to read, the title of my Page, here on Poems From Psalms And Nature, is Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthologies.

Thank you to all. Next post will be from Psalm 118.

Psalm 107 and short poems

O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.

For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

Psalm 107: 1, 9

My poems are from a post yesterday at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin. I reprinted all the poems from the post here.
