Garden Tea Party by Charles A. Waugaman


Listen to the leaves
of robin song
spill into the rain:

parched dreams expanding
and staining the
long afternoon with

poignant fragrances:
blending past and
hope with vibrant joy.

We are working on a second large print chapbook, in the same style as Quiet Christmas Poetry.  The theme is Wisconsin Seasons and Encouragement.

roses in the sun
some ending
some beginning
and some in full bloom
good to grow older

cold days

My Journal Poems


cold days and serene
sunrises sunsets
hard life chapters
shine with God’s promises
fulfilled in time

I wrote the poem in 2011.
