A psalm for 1 May 2011

BLESSED is the man that hath not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stood in the way of sinners, * and hath not sat in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; * and in his law will he exercise himself day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the water-side, * that will bring forth his fruit in due season.

4 His leaf also shall not wither; * and look, whatsoever he doeth, it shall prosper.

5 As for the ungodly, it is not so with them; * but they are like the chaff, which the wind scattereth away from the face of the earth.

6 Therefore the ungodly shall not be able to stand in the judgment, * neither the sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

7 But the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous; * and the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Beyond all this fiddle

During the month of April, I attempted to produce a daily poem.  The sometimes surprising results of that exertion can be found at Hubbub and Fiddle.

As the Hubbub blog was intended solely for the National Poetry Month experiment, I have started a new blog for poems and light verse written in May 2011 and beyond.  It is called The Crystal Tambourine.

Readers of this blog are cordially invited to explore both Hubbub and the Tambourine!  Thank you all for your readerly indulgence.
