Good Morning

GOOD MORNING: Come and sit awhile

The Herald Democrat continues its salute to National Poetry Week with poems written by local folks. So far we have featured poems by school children and retirees and everyone in between. More than 40 poems have graced this space so far this month. With just a little bit more than a week to go, the list of published poems might break 50 titles this year.

GOOD MORNING: True Love

We have reached the half way mark in the Herald Democrat’s celebration of National Poetry Month and readers are continuing to send in original poetry. Some are long and others are short, but they all resonate with the power of words chosen carefully to evoke something from the reader. Please send submissions to news@heralddemocrat.com or to Poems at Herald Democrat, 603 South Sam Rayburn Fwy, Sherman, Texas 75090.

GOOD MORNING: Treachery, longing and honesty

April is National Poetry Month and in celebration of the written word, the Herald Democrat plans to yield this space for the entire month to local poets. Here are some poems sent in by a Gunter School Teacher Amy Porter. She answered our call for submissions from local school children. We hope other school teachers will use the student written poems we run to prove to their students that one does not have to be grown to create art. The first two of the following three poems are by the same student.

GOOD MORNING: The most precious gift

April is National Poetry Month and in celebration of the written word, the Herald Democrat plans to yield this space for the entire month to local poets. The chance to get a poem published here is open to anyone no matter their experience or knowledge of the standards of poetry.
