Happy Poetry Saturday my peeps.
My favorite color is purple. My favorite stone is Amethyst, yes even though I’m an April baby, I’m very much like Anne Shirley. Anne fell in love with the stone amethyst and for many years this has been my favorite.
I even asked Jman for a purple ring for an enagement ring.
Anyway on to the poem. It’s A Day By Emily Dickinson
A Day by Emily Dickinson
I’ll tell you how the sun rose, —
A ribbon at a time.
The steeples swam in amethyst,
The news like squirrels ran.
The hills untied their bonnets,
The bobolinks begun.
Then I said softly to myself,
“That must have been the sun!”
But how he set, I know not.
There seemed a purple stile
Which little yellow boys and girls
Were climbing all the while
Till when they reached the other side,
A dominie in gray
Put gently up the evening bars,
And led the flock away.
Genesis 1:14 God said, “Let there be lights in the huge space of the sky. Let them separate the day from the night. Let the lights set the times for the holy celebrations and the days and the years.
TTFN and may God Bless you and keep you.
