Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

…to give unto them
beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise
for the spirit of heaviness…

lilac bushes

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

lilac bushes
with fading leaves
in fall sun

beautiful today

with no worries
about whether or not
they will bloom
