The First Shrike

(Still Waiting-Inpending / Hernando County Florida)

My Daughter


I have not seen her
in more than a year
they think I will get
better by not seeing
her

I have not finished
mowing some Else's
yard I am ill

I hear thunder and lightning
I will go out and finish mowing
some body Else's yard

I am 49 she is only four
my only child
I go out and mow
the yard

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
