Quiet Times

By Mary Nida Smith (c)

A quiet time in prayer

a time to listen to His voice.

Busy with daily routine

the sound of the world is heard.

In prayers we ask for guidance

in our daily walk through life.

Without the quiet times

His answers go unheard.

Young people's Poetry week
Cowboy Poetry Week

Free Verse Poetry Group ( Mountain Home, AR)
Baxter County Poets Association
Donald W. Reynolds Library "THE THING" April 26, 2014

Poetry is for all ages.
Read each day of the year.


by Mary Nida Smith

I started as a poet
got lost along the way.
I am back.
I am here to stay.
I have found a circle
of free verse poets
who welcome me
as a lost poet
returning home.
A warm cozy place
to relax, to read and
encouraged to read,
wearing my heart
where everyone hears the beats
and they softly repeat,
read on,
       read on.
