Bards of the Sangamo 8-7-03

The Vision Holds

The Vision holds
Its ancient face
Takes time to remember
This wrinkled place
And all that yet
The twinkle remains
In Springfield's eyes
The Artists' domain.

--Anita Stienstra

Local poets were writing about contemporary events in the Sangamo Journal as early as the 1830s. People's Poetry wants you to share your thoughts on what's happening in Springfield today--in poetic form. Poems on any subject will be considered, but ones that deal with issues of local interest are encouraged. Send yours to poetry editor Lee Gurga, P.O. Box 662, Lincoln, IL 62656, or to gurga@ccaonline.com with "Bards of the Sangamo" in the subject line. (Please limit your submissions to poems of 14 lines or less.)
