Now
my father,...
freed from age,...
hunts a woods
of oak and elm

where wild boar root among the leaves
to seek
what food
there is to find

The sun goes down:
on summer fields
where wheat still grows
as tall as men,

on slender girls
with secret smiles...

for one
who’s young...
and strong again

Very much enjoyed the read John.
Hugs~Nancy

Now while the leaves still dance on the wind
While the moon and the clouds come spinning
Will you whisper my name again?
Again..and again.
