The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.

— Dust of Snow, Robert Frost.

 

A Time of Enigmas

I have not seen you in ages,

But I will still wear 

your laugh on my sleeve–

I will still say we are children,

and look at you the same,

knowing we came from 

that known place times ago.

Poigance 

We do lots of things 

We thought we’d never do–

We sing many songs we’d rather not.

We cry tears we cannot replicate,

We think unthinkable thoughts.

Goodbyes are so unfashionable–

Sad is not my style.

I liked you better with me,

By best, it will be awhile.

Newness

You tell me

I am yours.

You hug me

In mercy

or something like it.

You smell so uncertain

yet appeasing.

There is only

One thing

Like you.

Fever

Hearts are red 

And so am I–

We have been overdue.

Beneath the wings 

of Hope and Trust–

There lies me and you.

The fear of love

is absent now;

Where love has become true.
