ROCKINGHAM — A new group for Richmond County storytellers, poets and aspiring authors is seeking new members to share their writing.


Five people were present at the Richmond County Writers’ Club’s monthly meeting, held Sunday at The Hive recreation center, 107 Mill Road. Meetings are scheduled at 3 p.m. the first Sunday of each month at The Hive.


Lucille Capps shared this poem she wrote in 1987 with the group on Sunday:


“Let’s”


by Lucille Capps


Let’s remember we are human


Made with feet of clay


But let’s keep each other promises


That we’ll try to keep each day.


With each day’s new beginning


Say the words we’d like to hear


Start each day with a promise


To always hold each other dear.


Let’s live in the present


Old things must be put aside


The body has its frailties


And small things injure pride.


When we disagree, let’s say “I’m sorry”


Before we end each day


Because tomorrow brings new trials


We can’t go back to yesterday.


We may find fault with each other


Age will surely take its toll


The things that used to matter most


Are not our future goal.


Let’s put the past behind us


We can’t change it anyway


Let’s file it with our memories


On the pages of yesterday.


Let’s treat each new day dawning


Like the first day that we met


Each smile, each touch, each endearment


These are the things we won’t forget.


When the day has ended


The outside world let us be


Let’s find time for each other


Dusk to dawn belongs to you and me.


When our life is over


If we have given it our best


We can face the far horizon


For our love has stood the test.
