Letter: Sharing a poem about Colorado

I wanted to submit a poem that my elderly mother recently wrote. She used to write a column in the Glenwood Post in the late ’70s and early ’80s titled “Kathy’s Corner.” Her name then was Kathy Yajko — now Kathy Love.


Have you ever stopped to wonder

How fortunate you are

To live among the mountains

That rise above so far …

To watch the trees sway in the breeze,

And see the birds fly by,

Their beauty and serenity

Brings forth a peaceful sigh

The Colorado mountains

Will never cease to be

Their majestic beauty continues on

For all of us to see!
