Life Of Unpaid Debts - Poem by David Whalen

I feel as one…now
With the grass and trees
Part and parcel
Of capricious breeze
Feel the need to fall
Upon my knees
And beg…“let me linger
A little longer please”

I feel a certain sadness
Perhaps more sure
A certain madness
In my humble
And bumbling
Clumsy. Stumbling

I feel somehow
More related
(tho’ perhaps
A bit belated)
To Mother Nature…
With her wind-song
In the trees

I feel the weight
Of long due freight
The debt of a lifetime
Of unpaid fees…
Words left unspoken
Hearts perhaps broken
So now I make my plea

Upon my knee
In all humility
And beg good Naturedly…
“If you should be so good
If you only would….
let me linger…
A little longer
