I think I might have mentioned how much I have enjoyed this summer's poem swap. It's really nice to get to know poetry people through their writing.
I have two beautiful swaps share.
First, Karen Edminsten sent this, sunny, sandy poem. I received it on a day my children had gone off to visit their grandparents for a week and I was just a touch blue in my quiet house. But, this gem was in my mailbox and I smiled. Thank you, Karen.
Later in the week, I opened a package from Tara Smith that contained a delightful little book titled Chrysanthemums. Even better? it was published in 1903. Oh, do I love an antique book...and this one is stunning. The paper, the pages, the photographs from a bygone era. I have so enjoyed paging through this little beauty.
