New Every Morning - Susan Coolidge
I have dusted off my Poem for the Day book and am going to type up the ones I really like as I go through it.
January 1st’s poem is New Every Morning by Susan Coolidge.
Every day is a fresh beginning,
Listen my soul to the glad refrain.
And, spite of old sorrows
And older sinning,
And possible pain,
Take heart with the day and begin again
- Susan Coolidge
What Katy Did, etc, by Susan Coolidge
I just finished rereading the trifecta of “What Katy Did”, “What Katy Did At School,” and “What Katy Did Next,” all by Susan Coolidge. Look I GREW UP ON HILARIOUSLY MORALISTIC OLD KIDS’ BOOKS and find them desperately charming and I AM STILL TOTES IN LOVE WITH WHAT KATY DID. The sequels aren’t quite as good but once you start you can’t stop, you know?

“Whenever she stopped to think about her height she became very awkward, and felt as if she were all legs and elbows, and angles and joints.”—Susan Coolidge
