On Poetry

I hope you all enjoyed this past year’s posts.  It all started when I realized that I was having difficulty finding a few quiet moments every day to just think, and I decided that a year’s devotional would be good for me. In addition to a little daily scripture, I decided I’d throw in some poetry to get my mind stretched back out.

Poetry does a good job of reminding me of things which ought to be remembered, and to show me that the problems we face now are not new.  When a poem written centuries ago speaks to the grind, the heartaches, or the rancor of your day, you understand that men and women through the ages lived through the same things as you.

Anyway, thanks for coming along with me on my daily mental calisthenics.


  1. I enjoyed it. I didn’t always click through, but you reminded me of old forgotten gems, and introduced some new-to-me works. It was interesting to follow along with.


    • This definitely took me to places I’ve not been to in years, and I found a few diversions along the way.

    Thank you for sharing your daily mental stretching with us.
    I have never been much for poetry, however, I have rediscovered old favorites, and picked up some new ones, thanks to checking in daily here. Mental stretching is good 🙂

    Hey DB;

    Again you were able to run something for a year, impressive. You dug up some I remember from school….and some I never heard of before. Well done 🙂
