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: Time for those eggs

It is Holy Week and that means it is way past time for me to have my yearly Easter treat — Cadbury Creme Eggs. Though I have, on occasion, been known to eat WAY too many of them, I generally just have one a year. Really, one is quite enough.
