New Feature! Poetry Wednesday

I've decided to add a new blog feature:  Poetry Wednesday.  Sometimes, this space will feature a poem from YouTube and sometimes it will highlight a poem in print.  At times, I will feature my own poetry.  I hope you all enjoy our continued foray into beauty!  I'm going to start with Billy Collins, "The Lanyard".  Since this is the height of the summer, and lanyards are often made during the long hours of summer camp, this poem will start us off.

You've shared this poem with me before. It's wonderful and witty. My dd has been doing some lanyard recently. It's a great way to keep busy and pass the time.

Lanyards evoke memories of summer.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
