It's way past time for thank yous. Please forgive me Margaret Simon for being so late. Too much company on Fridays made it a challenge to share either Christmas or New Year's. But isn't this wonderful to still be sharing our Winter Poem Swap treasures, still giving much pleasure. I received the following from Margaret right before Christmas, and am still reading and loving this new anthology from Georgia Heard. Thanks again to Tabatha Yeatts for organizing the Swap!
Margaret mentioned in one of her recent posts that she went to an art session where she learned to make gelli paper. I am intrigued by this kind of art, and hope I'll get to make some one day, but in the meantime, will enjoy the wrapping paper created and used for my gift. Also included is that wonderful bookmark and gift tag, more created by Margaret.
SPECIAL NOTE TODAY: IT IS SNOWING, AND WHILE THE LEAVES
ARE GONE, WE HAVE THAT 'SOFT SILENCE' HERE TODAY!
Margaret wrote that a friend created the art above, and then she wrote the poem, both beautifully thoughtful to see and read.
There's a soft silence
on the journey, delicate
turning toward home.
Thanks again Margaret and Tabatha for enriching my Christmas with poetry.
