NaPoWriMo Day 21: U is for Updike


I just read a poem by John Updike that made me cry.    I won’t post it here, but if you click on his name, it will hyperlink to the poem…  You’ll have to get your own box of tissues.

And without further ado,  my NaPoWriMo poem…

So kind of the night

to come with its dark comfort

for my heavy eyes.

    The birds welcome us with sun.
    Rejoice, a new day.
