The Greater Horizon - Poem by Amberlee Carter

Today I saw a man
who was,
just yesterday a boy
with whom I had played.

and he spoke within my youthful ear
of how he was going away-
to catch the sun
and her many calico horizons.

and though I felt to mourn
I spoke instead, in gentle tongue:

' Father, will you be gone long? '
