Rookie (October 6th,1957 / Kansas)


Lifted spirits with one word
Wiping tears as never occurred
Expose the future free, unbounded
You are far away.

Image soft of light caresses
Waken brightly all my senses
Time no more our life regresses
Stay with me this day.

Linger, slowly fading vision
Return to our daily mission
For your voice now I do listen
There must be a way.

Before the music cold and still
Dies in us, our bitter pill
To save us from the sorrow ill
A song to never play.

I respire fast and deep
No more binding rules to keep
Cross the seas and mountains steep
I’d run if I may.

Close the distance in between
Sweep in arms love’s never seen
To kindle fires to flame again
Only one word say.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.

No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
