A BEAUTIFUL POEM TO SHARE TONIGHT........LET EVENING COME.......


LET THE LIGHT OF LATE AFTERNOON
SHINE THROUGH CHINKS IN THE BARN,
MOVING UP THE BALES AS THE SUN
MOVES DOWN.

LET THE CRICKET TAKE UP CHAFING
AS A WOMAN TAKES UP HER NEEDLES
AND HER YARN.  LET EVENING COME

LET DEW COLLECT ON THE HOE ABANDONED
IN LONG GRASS.  LET THE STARS APPEAR
AND THE MOON DISCLOSE HER SILVER HORN.

LET THE FOX GO BACK TO ITS SANDY DEN
LET THE WIND DIE DOWN.  LET THE SHED
GO BLACK INSIDE.  LET EVENING COME.

TO THE BOTTLE IN THE DITCH, TO THE SCOOP 
IN THE OATS, TO THE AIR IN THE LUNG
LET EVENING COME.

LET IT COME, AS IT WILL, AND DON'T 
BE AFRAID.  GOD DOES NOT LEAVE US
COMFORTLESS, SO LET EVENING COME.

Please enjoy this beautiful poem
from the Estate of Jane Kenyon

  16. Dearest Jo,

    Thank you for visiting me while on the ROAD!!!! And, your comments about my art are so kind...I am just having so much fun, and I hope that I can get the free-flowing feel to my art as I continue. I really have not developed my skills in MANY years, but I have no regrets; there are many things I did not pursue that some people say I SHOULD HAVE, but everything I have ever wanted to attempt, I did in due time. Now, it is time for fun....enjoy YOURSELF as you take your journey....Anita
