Love In A Poem - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

There were poems
In the ribbons m mother tied
In my hair when I was a child.

Oh, the poem in the frilly white dresses
I wore on Children's Day, Mother's Day, Easter.
Ribbons in my hair again, white satin, always.

You should have heard the poem
In the ripple of my father's laugh
In the middle of family and friends.

I could recite a poem for the wonder of our
2 baby's
First cries...each one, a melody of rhyme.
The grand babies and great grands.

The poem of our love could have won
Blue ribbons in letter you wrote while
At war,
Far from home - you so tall and handsome.

Ah, there is a poem in each breath we take,
A poem in each step we take toward another
Tomorrow...and certainly there is a poem
In the wonder of our Heavenly Father's love!

Treasures True!
There are poems to be found all around us...
Look!
