Two Poems


Food Pantry collections
warm greetings
and offers of help with groceries
old-fashioned kindness
warms our hearts


Salvation Army
bell ringers
so cheerful in the cold
adding a dollar
to a Red Kettle or two


“Salvation Army” was published in Bell’s Letters Poet (2011).

Christmas Poems

Christmas CDs
playing with the volume low
in the fields
the beauty of harvested
corn in snow


Sunday morning
all the lovely voices
singing Silent Night


reading one page
at a time
of this book and that
in gentle wind


new year
on the horizon
simple lines
of barns and trees
in the fog


looking at trees
I remember prayers
of friends
