SEASON and the Bible verse from Ecclesiastes are from our large print book, Quiet Christmas Poetry.

February afternoon

blue sky
and sun shines
on the snow
that rests on
evergreen trees

shadows of trees
on the snow that
covers the path,
flower gardens,
and lawn

if the weather is not
too severe –

I thought of patients needing
to see their caregivers now, and
when I needed to reach my mother,

teach a class –

there is a solitude
a quiet now
like no other time
of the year

Love

Since Valentine’s Day is on February 14, I searched my blog for Bible verses I’ve quoted about love over the years. Here are two verses and a poem.

A new commandment I give unto you,
that ye love one another;
as I have loved you,
that ye also love one another.

John 13: 34 (KJV)

We love him,
because he
first loved us.

1 John 4: 19 (KJV)

POEM

years
generations
stories

told
in many
ways

how love
may change
yet endures

(2014)
