and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

a ribbon holds my place

You are welcome to reprint my poems with proper credit. Ideas include bulletin boards in classrooms, libraries, hospitals, nursing homes – places where a short poem may be an encouragement to someone or help with a poetry lesson. If someone reads a poem, and thinks, “I can write too,” that is wonderful.
