And So My Soul: large print poem

And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again
As the sun spills
Over flowers
And the neighborhood
Sleeps

Endurance is eloquent
And marigolds are
Admirable because
They bloom
So long

Oh, my heart
Is tender
Yet God keeps it
Strong
And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again

Ellen Grace Olinger

Time of Singing,1991

From my post, Old Poem: And So My Soul. I thought it would be helpful to some readers to also offer a large print version.

late Fall: large print

I look at my shelves, and what has been there for a time; and I have not read this book or that journal. Then I wonder why – what was happening then? And I remember, and maybe had read a poem or two, or a page or two, and was helped and blessed.

late Fall
and Winter soon
plans for silence
and time to read
