    Loved it Mary, somehow the tallest of trees gives most way to the wind even though they see the wind coming before most do. I send this to a friend who is till marching in the wounded ranks. I sometimes wonder if the wounded army perhaps outnumbers the fit for fight troupe. Yet you will find them deep in battle even sometimes tending the needs of others. Love from SA

    Mary is a darling and witty woman. She is quick to smile, and make you laugh. When health concerns caused her to withdraw from teaching it was a loss to many. We who miss her in that field are so happy to learn she has found a place to shine again. Mary, you could always make me laugh and now through reading such lovely poems, you have sometimes managed to make me cry. All the best -Hugh

Best Poem of Mary Havran

Before The Dawn

Before dawn wind rushes
driving night’s chill westward
so vestiges of darkness
send shivers along my spine.
Facing east I fight
cold’s piercing urge to wince,
and huddled await morn’s blush.
No wind or cold may dissuade
my eyes from pending purchase
of that precious brief pink palette,
clouds trimmed in rosy piping
which dress the sky at dawn.

Read the full of Before The Dawn

Crimson Cymbals

The clash of colors that surrounds
stuns the sense, breaks the bounds.
My mind instructs my eyes' belief
challenged now by every leaf.

Crisp-aired heavens don a hue
transpiring primary blue.
Summer greens cease dominate
to autumn pallet abdicate.
