Newness of the Year



NEWNESS OF THE YEAR


Your promises are small
And easy,
Golden sweet as honey,
Strong as tempered steel.
One I choose to follow:
Be still. Be still. Be still.

  1. We need to fix this link into Poets United so everyone can see this gem (I fiound it on the sidebar but not in Mr. Linky). The feeling and reality of the promises are captured in the repetition at the end. A keeper, a life changer!
