Quiet Christmas Poetry


Quiet Christmas Poetry, our large print chapbook from this site, may be ordered from the books page at Time Of Singing: A Journal Of Christian Poetry.  Lora Homan Zill is Editor.

Karl and I published this book in 2014.  Here are a few of the poems:

and humility

cold country night
two deer in the front yard
graze in starlight

E  nlivens
A  nd
S  olitude
O  pens
N  ew thoughts

To everything there is a season,
and a time to every purpose
under the heaven . . .

Ecclesiastes 3: 1 (KJV)

Short Review by Lora Homan Zill


Under “Book Offers” in the Fall 2015 issue of Time Of Singing, Lora Homan Zill, Editor, included a picture of the Christmas book and wrote: “Light and easy to hold, with large print, it is ideal for anyone battling or recovering from serious illness, or who needs a special word of encouragement over the holiday season.”  This was the goal, and we are grateful.

If you wish to order a copy of Quiet Christmas Poetry, please visit the books page at Time Of Singing.  There is an ordering form that may be printed.  All proceeds benefit TOS.  I have subscribed to this journal for years.

Two Books In Print

We have two books in print, from Elin Grace Publishing.  Both are available at the books page at Time Of Singing.  All proceeds benefit this excellent print journal, edited by Lora Homan Zill.

There is a special price of three books for $12.00.  One copy is $5.00.  Time Of Singing would also be a nice gift for someone or yourself.


Quiet Christmas Poetry, by Ellen Grace Olinger, is a large print version of this site.


At the Time Of Singing site, on the books page, you will also see information about a poetry anthology with TOS, Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need.  This book includes many poets and is illustrated by Charles A. Waugaman.
