The Tenth Day of Poetry

Holiday Card Postmarked from Holland

A canal, from one who’s crossed the crowded ice.

A windmill, from one who’s felt the chill nearby.

Some birds, from one who’s heard their winter cries.

A Kerstdagen greeting without a single lie

for me to believe in.

by Therese L. Broderick from Poetry Inspired by Art. If you want to check out this poem in its original form and read about the inspiration for it then click here.

I love it --beautiful simply, I can see the windmills and canals of Holland in these few words ---

Merry Christmas --

Thank you for this, and the whole site. Since I started writing myself, I also have been able to appreciate the works of others as well. I am going to link here so those that come by mine can also visit here.
