Change In Scenery


I'll keep my small town girl name
but you can change the trees
change the breeze

I'll keep my big heart
but you can change the roads
change the toads

I'll keep my ice-melting smile
but you can change the distance
change the miles

I'll keep my soft hands
but you can change the grass
change the land

I'll keep what makes me me
but you can change our untogetherness
and change the scenery

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
