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.

The Psalms and Short Poems

For the Psalms 2020 series, I worked with the King James Version of the Bible. I enjoyed reprinting some verses in the form of a short poem.

Two examples:

Be thou exalted, LORD,
in thine own strength:
so will we sing and praise thy power.

Psalm 21: 13

Let the words of my mouth,
and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight,
O LORD, my strength,
and my redeemer.

Psalm 19: 14
