Howdy y'all! Ok I decided to do a "Wednesday" theme, and mine will be poems! I won't tell you what they mean to me, because I want y'all to tell me what you think! Also, I would like to make a public announcement saying, I'm sorry to those who commented on my other blog and I didn't publish. I'm sorta new to that, but I figured it out, so I'm terribly sorry!!!!!! Please forgive me???? So this one is:
"The Book Our Mother's Read"
(John Greenleaf Whittier)
"We search the world for truth; we cull*
The good, the pure, the beautiful,
From graven stone and written scroll,
And all old flower-fields of the soul;
And, weary seekers of the best,
We come back laden from our quest,
To find that all the sages said
Is in the Book our mothers read."
*cull-to select or gather
