(1997 / Townsville, Australia)

Born Years Too Late


Birthed into a world well past his time,
My, he must have been decades too late,
Our young boy matured each and every day
And as such our concerns did resonate
The evening he preached of morals aged six
Confirmed our worst fears…
His sentence was announced: forever denounced
Would be the boy born beyond his years.

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
