May of the morning...

Rises to become my sun
Window-box flowers sing to your smile
That gives light to their petals
And life to their delicate leaves
Rooms filled with airs about you
A gift that transcends the time
That I beg to spend close by you
Now that I've found you again

May of the evening...

Glows in radiance as my lovers' moon
Tides move quietly from the shore
Whispering her name on gentle breakers
Her silvery lace flows with southern compliments
As she fills my spirit and refreshes my soul
Long will be the night she promises
And we two to know its pleasures
'Til the sun wakes the sleeping flowers once again


Always difficult to choose one out of many, but this one was written for one gal close to my heart and nothing at all to do with previous entanglements.


88's all.

She told me "play one for your supper Danny and maybe you'll get breakfast".

I think my favorite(s) were those on Rilke. First, because I didn't know he existed. And somewhere over the years, I heard from a poet who said, "have you read him?" And I never had. To find that Rilke was German, like myself, was good. To find out his family and the hardships, and the reasons he came to be himself, made him closer to me, so I continued for a while to welcome him to my window of thought.

There are other pieces that I would pick, but like yourself, I'm am my own worst critic.

"Can I keep you" I think is my best poem ever. I love how it flows and the honesty in it.

My best is resting right now. It is difficult to assimilate life, poetry, strength, without a Balladeer in our lives. I may speak for many, maybe only myself. To know such a teacher; one, who gave willingly; never hestated on politic; spoke that brilliant mind: it was no wonder Ron took you up as a contemporary.

Thanking you in memory, Michael, for your deeds in teaching, your way of making everyone welcome, your ability to register silent sarcasm, and especially for the debates. You were a learning curve of the greatest design, a true Leo Who became silent too soon.

In my love for you my sweet
not a worry comes to mind
Where each seed that has been planted
there are flowers now to find

Wading through the grain fields
is a walk down lovers lane
Even though I broke my leg
still, there is no pain

Trodding on to Grandma's house
with horn-o’-plenty's yield
My crutch wedged 'tween the cobblestones
fracturing Achilles heel

Then I came upon a pig's retreat
built of straw n’ sticks n’ mortar
When suddenly a wolf appeared
asking for Grandmother

"Aren't you just a bit confused",
I asked the feral wanderer
"Grandma's house is three miles back
if you’re looking for food to plunder"

"‘Tis food indeed I seek little lass”!
...the furry foe did say
“Just a peek inside your basket
and you’ll soon be on your way”!

So I set the tricky timer
and stepped back a pace or two
The Wolf  popped open the basket
…left nothing but his shoes

...just bein' Bluesy
