Autumn Memories

poems written
in a notebook
a post and perhaps
published again
years later

autumn garden
with the light and rest
some work complete
and always more to do
a new season begins

autumn memories
my mother often quoted
from literature she knew well
the Psalms, Shakespeare, novels
and even later when others
may not have understood
I knew what she was saying

Ellen Grace Olinger

always poems

there are poems
in the clouds and
sunrise

and light seen
on the garage
from the kitchen

and one yellow leaf
on the birch tree

there are always poems

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

moving my recliner
closer to new sun

almost autumn
today I have
an appointment
with the light and books
in my small study
