Poetry Sunday


Ogden Nash is widely known as one of the great writers of light, humorous poetry. He wrote more than 500 poems in the course of his career ... I'd never heard this one before I ran across it a few weeks ago, but I really like it and it seems appropriate for a summer Sunday ...


I Didn't Go to Church Today
by Ogden Nash

I didn't go to church today,
I trust the Lord to understand.
The surf was swirling blue and white,
The children swirling on the sand.
He knows, He knows how brief my stay,
How brief this spell of summer weather,
He knows when I am said and done
We'll have plenty of time together.


I hope you're enjoying this first Sunday of summer, whether you went to church or not.

Have a good day. More thoughts coming.

A nice poem to commemorate those days when it's a sin to be indoors.

Sunday morning is best spent in bed.
