The Ladder

Who put the ladder there?

I’d like to know.

*

But there the apple and there the tree

And there the child, who looks at me.

River Road

River Road (100 words)

The running road runs like a river
Through the flowers and the loam;
The one road that I desire
Is the road that’s running home.

Goblin Summer Song (69 Words)

God is singing in the summer
Rolling out the leaves of green
Straightening the little weedlings
And spreading every songbird’s wing.

Reflection (74 Words)

O looking back the way I came,
I found my future much the same;
The dreams short-lived, the shadows tall,
Still one true Light above it all.

Amorphous

Summer’s lease   is short
But if he had         compared her
To a cloud             we’d know
It was true             for clouds
Somehow             are never
The same               but always
Changing               under
Under                    the eye
And                       yet
They are                 always
Just                         the same
As                           a
Song.

Banners Fly (107 Words)

I like to see a banner fly
Proud beneath the unfurled sky
Yet all its show can’t match the glow
In my dear’s dark and shining eye.

Seaside Song

sea-mist

Seaside Song (131 Words)

Was a sailor, sailor lad
Fell into the salty brine
Hit his head and caught his legs
In seaweed thick and tough as twine.

A mermaid fair with curling hair
Saw him drowning in the deep
Cut him free and brought him low
To her coral home for sleep.

The Clock

The Clock (81 Words)

Were I the motion, hammer of the mind
I should by motion my free thought express—
And through the idle moments left in wind
Would meter action to a timed distress.
