Greetings, Poetry Lovers! Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Poetry Friday!
Just these few lines from Henry VI Part II today, that my dearest friend Sue posted, and I tracked down and borrowed...
O Lord that lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.
Henry VI, Part II, Act 1, Scene 1
I had just made this new ornament (with vintage elements, such as the way-cool 1964 US postage stamp celebrating The Bard), and it seemed like a good fit. Well, technically the stamp is deliciously dark with nods to Hamlet, but still.
AND, one thing I am SO thankful for is the news that Janet Wong has received the NCTE Excellence in Poetry Award!! I was so excited when I read the news on my computer last weekend that I jumped up and jammed my toe. (It's all good.)
What a fine recognition for such a Powerhouse of Poetry!!
--Wishing you and yours a safe & happy holiday weekend during these unusual times.
You'll find the Poetry Friday Roundup at Carol's Corner - Thanks, Carol!
