This week’s poem in the Catholic Poetry Room is by Sister Lou Ella.
children learn in geography
it is tomorrow somewhere
for the edge of every now
slowly shifts into yesterday
there is another,
a more important lesson to be learned:
only after the soul’s now
has worn the night of everything
Sister Lou Ella’s poems have appeared in numerous magazines and journals as well as three anthologies. She was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2017. Her first book of poetry entitled she: robed and wordless was published in 2015. (Press 53)
