I encourage participants to write their own poems. A few make a stab at it. A lady new to Brookdale Orange City and our poetry group wrote this one. Marilyn is also hoping to start a Book Club for us.
I look forward to the Poetry Corner
And am grateful to Virginia for
Sharing her talents and skills
In a dearth of culture, it’s better than pills.
It’s a chance for us to wallow in grace,
Which is often lacking in our dwelling place.
We get permission to think and feel…
To express our thoughts
And feelings which are real.
A lot of us face adversity
Our Poetry Corner
Gives us a bit of a university.
