First Day of Summer Arrived


We borrowed this day
From the chores that needed
To be done
And ran away in celebration
Of the first day of summer
Which arrived with thunder roaring
And forceful rain...ah, but we
Were side by side thankful for the
Blessing of another day
Exchanging serenades, sharing laughter
And the impassioned bounty of our
Being together.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
