Sunday Stamps: Writers

 Good day, and welcome to a very warm day in the American Midwest.  I have been remiss in my posting for Sunday stamps!  And I do have a writer and a poem for today.  It is a repeat from a long ago post when I was hosting Sunday Stamps.


Walt Whitman, known for Leaves of Grass and who is appreciated more as times go by.  I like this excerpt from Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking:

Once Paumanok,

When the lilac-scent was in the air and Fifth-month grass was growing,

Up this seashore in some briers,

Two feather'd guests from Alabama, two together,

And their nest, and four light-green eggs spotted with brown,

And every day the he-bird to and fro near at hand,

And every day the she-bird crouch'd on her nest, silent, with bright eyes,

And every day I, a curious boy, never too close, never disturbing them,

Cautiously peering, absorbing, translating.


Shine! shine! shine!

Pour down your warmth, great sun!

While we bask, we two together.


Two together!

Winds blow south, or winds blow north,

Day come white, or night come black,

Home, or rivers and mountains from home,

Singing all time, minding no time,

While we two keep together.

Sunday Stamps: Sky

 Happy Sunday and welcome to my stamps blog.

I was away last week with travel and a wedding to attend.  It was a beautiful ceremony and a beautiful day.

This week's theme is sky.

The USPS has released stamps featuring scenes along the Mississippi River, and this is one of the stamps in that set.  There are 10 stamps in the set.  I don't have these in hand; I am using the scan from the USPS website.  Lots of sky and water in this image.

Sunday Stamps: Uniforms

 Hello, and welcome to my contribution to Sunday Stamps.

This week's theme is Uniforms, which can be interpreted is several ways.  Military?  Sports teams?

I went with a stamp for the US Postal Service:

A stamp honoring Japanese American soldiers who bravely fought in the European portion of World War II.  These men were US citizens who were at first in internment camps.  Some worked as translators too.

Sunday Stamps: Shaped

 And this is post # 600!

I am still tired from Covid.  I am still walking around my family and in stores with a double mask on.

So this will be quick.  The theme today is shaped stamps and our hostess has some great ones.  I have one that came on a postcard from Postcrossing, some time ago:


From Thailand, an unusual 7 sided shape.
