perhaps
we know
we have found
our home

when the same
sights touch
our hearts deeply
year after year

Queen Anne’s Lace
and warm August
days, gardens,
and fields

To Target in Kohler today, and visiting some country roads I haven’t seen as much lately.  I’ve started over a few times.  Also true that many of the things I love transcend time and place.

Poems For Bulletin Boards

I have a small site called Poems For Bulletin Boards.   Anyone looking for a poem for a lesson or bulletin board is welcome to use one of my poems, with proper credit.  I think of all ages, and a variety of settings.  The poems are familiar to many of you.
