Best Poem of Roger A. Rose

The Lights From Under The Snow

It was in the Dead of Winter I saw them,
glowing under deep fallen snow.
Eerie fluorescence showing supernatural.
Strange lights somehow comforting,
giving promise of warmth in the harshest pall.

In summer, the lamps will brightly shine,
a pond the lights circle round.
The fish will swim and the waters sing,
the garden gaily lit. The glow from under
the winter snow, says soon it will be Spring.

First Memory Of Urinals

Mommas' heels tapped a tune
on the hard slate floor
and it echoed through the hall
of the courthouse.

She led me by the hand
to the basement
and the only public
toilets down town.
