POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN – 2021
N ew thoughts
To everything there is a season,
and a time to every purpose
under the heaven . . .
Ecclesiastes 3: 1 (KJV)
SEASON is one of the poems from Quiet Christmas Poetry, which is both a site and a large print chapbook.
Three New Books by Carol Purington is a beautiful post by her family at Woodslawn Farm. She asked her family to complete this work for her. I ordered the books and am now reading them. Excellent work by all.
Please visit Woodslawn Farm for more information.

We have bought used books from libraries over the years. I have three novels by Jan Karon from our Oostburg Public Library “A Little Library Growing Everyday.”
Karl took the photos at the Oostburg library in July 2018 and 2019.
