Greetings, Poetry Lovers!
Just a quick wave from Middleton Place today, a former plantation near Charleston and home to the country's oldest landscaped gardens. (Here's a link to learn more: https://www.middletonplace.org/ -- I can't seem to embed links or format type remotely at the moment.)
We were able to explore the grounds this morning, ahead of the storms expected this afternoon. Strong winds are already here! There's no snow here, but this poem by William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) seems appropriate for the weather today, and, in a way, appropriate for Good Friday.
The sky has given over its bitterness.
Out of the dark change
all day long rain falls and falls
as if it would never end.

Here's hoping all are staying safe in this weather! I'm rather late posting today, as I spent all my recent computer time getting out my artsyletters newsletter for Spring.
Click this link if you'd like to see it; and sign up for future ones at artsyletters.com if you like.
May storms give way to light and life, and may your weekend be filled with joy!
