In offering to my several friends who have recently lost dear ones… Words cannot begin to touch this. But what I have, I give you.

Re-run: Untrodden Ground

Hello all! I know it’s been a while, I’ve been out on the Appalachian Trail. New poems (AND SONGS!) to come soon! Until then, in honor of the trail, here’s a re-run of my last hiking poem
Untrodden Ground

Featured poet! Andrew Peterson

Eyes on my favorite lyricist, a man who should be known far and wide for his powerful way with words. Andrew Peterson is a glorious songwriter and poet, he has a way of capturing emotions that were too deep for anyone else to adequately touch.

In honor of #NationalPoetryMonth, here is his song “To All the Poets I Have Known”. I had to cut the chorus out to fit it into a picture for you all (shame on me, I know). So go check out the song here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9q1HIKpXIw
And check out Andrew Peterson’s youtube channel for many other beautiful songs:https://www.youtube.com/user/andrewpetersonmusic/videos

Andrew Peterson - To All the Poets

Featured poet! W. R. Hill

William “Bill” Hill is a wonderful, lesser-known poet from a small town in Pennsylvania. I love his short, simple poems with themes on the quiet beauty of nature and the small joys and truths of life.

The poem and cover are from his book “A Ditty Will Do”

National Poetry Month!

Friends, I have been remiss!
I have been so busy that it is halfway through NATIONAL POETRY MONTH and I haven’t posted any poems!!!
Unacceptable. Rest assured, I HAVE been working on things for you! I have some poems and some songs, and in honor of National Poetry Month I will be posting something EVERY DAY for the rest of April! Some will be my work, some will feature lesser-known poets, and some will be classics from my favorite poets across time.
Keep a lookout for all the good things, starting TODAY!
