~WEEKLY ROMANTIC POEM FOR Tuesday, May 30, 2000                      NEXT/          PREVIOUS/          ALL            HOME 

playing by the sea

skipping rope in the sand

telling secrets to seagulls

who never had heard whisper

We were children playing by the sea

Never knew that I would get caught

in the skip rope

and you would be carried away

by the seagulls

8-19-71 Montauk Pt. Long Island New York

Saw you last night

who grew

out of the street we use to live off of

and that I have never left

The rains fell

The bus left

Laugh at me

I'll stay.

2-20-72 New Orleans

I've always loved you

and every few times I see you

When your window opens into my life

I taste your breath

When the drapes are folded and placed

behind your breast I climb Mt. Olympus

and laugh with Zeus

When the kindling is lit

I romp in your fire

We are like two galaxies tossing

shooting stars to and fro

I have always known you to be

and I will love you in my mind

until all the poems fall to the ground.

9-01-77 Towson Maryland

"Come here"

said the spinach

I looked around to be sure

no one was watching

Now we are married

and spend our evenings

laying in the garden

listening to the vegetables

sing the night away.
