Here's the poem again:

The Steeple
by Lori Lipsky

The village spire
Built high and seen
From north and east
And surrounding fields

Has its effect
On those nearby
Who view the steeple
Day after day

To some it is beauty
To others a warning
Still others pursue its
Point to the heavens above

Did you notice how the sky was different in each photo?
What a striking contrast to the constancy of the steeple. Nice job Sandy- and congratulations Sue!!!!!
