Being with Ginny this week reminded me of the poems I wrote years ago. Today I found some of them in my box of memories. This one was written in 1971.
Did you see the way the sun came up this morning -
So red and glorious in the birth
Of a new child day?
I saw the leaves dancing
In the golden rays of tresses strewn around
As their jealous mothers' branches
Held them to their boughs.
Did you see the golden sands
Reflecting the shimmering light
Of the skies
In the ocean's eyes?
Or did you sleep like the moon does
And miss the birth of today?
October 13th 1971
