I don't read much poetry, but I found her poem 'At sunset' to be beautiful and so vividly descriptive and colourful. I have only quoted the first verse, but I think it is enough to inspire many a colourful card!
To-night the west o'er-brims with warmest dyes;
Its chalice overflows
With pools of purple colouring the skies,
Aflood with gold and rose;
And some hot soul seems throbbing close to mine,
As sinks the sun within that world of wine.
How beautiful! It sure is inspirational. Maybe it will get me in gear! Thanks Ina. Hope you are doing well.
