Poems for the New Year

Poems for the New Year

Actually, these poems have nothing to do with the new year, but I have so many posts titled “Three Poems” or some variation thereof, that I tried to come up with a different title.

These poems were inspired by an exercise in poemcrazy by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge.

Unaccustomed shivering
Don’t stand in the shade
