A Blush is a Blush


For all to see
Paint brush of inner feeling
Colors the face
With crimson signs

Of sweet emotions
Or some other kinds

A momentary effusion
Mixed
Signaling the true
Or misconstrued

The innocent
Or the lewd

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
