History of a Poem

At POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN, I am reviewing some posts.

Some of the poems I wrote for my blogs have been published over the years in journals and books.

I thought History of a Poem would be a good way to present my current review and posts – perhaps a small book in the next year or two. Thank you.

Words from the Psalms

As I worked on this morning’s post, From Psalm 25, I thought again about the wonderful vocabulary list that can be created from the Psalms. For our series in 2020, I quoted from the King James Version. Over the years, I have read from different Bible translations.

soul

mercies

lovingkindnesses

“Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.”

An old haiku:

Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* The first line of my poem is from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV).
