TGIF, again


I have been busy creating a new Kindle book for Nolan. He found poems written by his father. His father died some years ago and looking though his papers we found many poems he wrote. We also found 3 epic poems. All written in long-hand, one is 52 pages, another is 45 pages and the last is 91 pages long. All one big poem, we call these poems epic poems. Typing each of them will take days and days.

We did publish 15 of his poems. He was a devote Catholic so most are related to his faith. Here is a sample of one of them:

The Good Soil

Oh, Lord, Creator of all things good
Teach us to live the way we should
Make of us the good soil.
In humility and patience to toil.
Within us, let you take a good root.
And blossom into glorious fruit.

Here is another example of Ray's poetry:

Smiling Through the Years

Your smile, badge of strength,
Keep renewing day by day
Spreading cheer to every length
Breadth and every which way,
Smiling through the beers,
Smiling through the cheers
Smiling through the fears
Smiling through the jeers
Smiling through the leers
Smiling through the tears
Even smiling though the years

Every line rhymed with the next or following line. Some poets rhymed the first and third lines, but Ray rhymed every line. This is a short poem, he has many much longer poems in this collection.

I downloaded the book, called Poems for the Spirit, to the kindle page today, but it will not be available until next Thursday. Amazon now wants business five days to review the content of the book.

I do not know if any of you have a Kindle reader as I do. But this book is only available on the Amazon Kindle page.

I have some asparagus to can here later today. I will probably get 3 to 4 quarts. I had to go the Internet to find out how to can this stuff.

The picture here I used for the photo on the Poems for the Spirit. Once this book shows up it will have this picture as part of its cover.

Hope you have a good weekend.
