Summer soon

Spring continues
to bless with primroses,
lilacs, forget-me-nots,
and bleeding hearts

Summer soon
and there will be peonies,
roses, daylilies, and hosta
flowers

Fall is welcome
in its time with
all the colors
and shorter days

Winter fades
from memory now
though not the beauty
and the quiet

Sometimes I wonder
where the years go
and what the seasons were
they are recorded here

Summer soon – June 7, 2019

We discovered the Little Free Library site a few years ago. Karl and I donated copies of Quiet Christmas Poetry to the free libraries in our area. We also gave a copy to our Oostburg Library in town.

Karl’s winter photo of the Lake Michigan beach, several years ago, is the Cover Art for Quiet Christmas Poetry.

And I am grateful for the WordPress.com free photo library.
