Fredericksburg Poetry of Sally Clark
I love to write at dusk,
that time of the day
when the shift is changing,
the sun is clocking out
and the moon is running late
and for just a little while
is left unattended.
Author’s Notes: In May of 2014, I wrote this poem, being inspired by nothing much at all, just the setting sun and the time of day when there are no shadows. I read the poem at my writers group, Hill Country Women of Words, and Megan Willome remarked that she really liked it. The next year, Megan was contacted by T.S. Poetry Press in New York to write a book about poetry for their Masters in Fine Living Series. Megan asked me if she could use “Unattended” and I was thrilled to be a part of her book with a poem and an interview. The Joy of Poetry: How to Keep, Save, & Make Your Life With Poems was published in 2016. If you live in or around Fredericksburg, contact Megan at email@example.com to purchase a signed copy.
Sally's first publication for children is "Where's My Hug?" a lift-the-flap board book published by WorthyKids/Ideals. Buy it for a child you love.
