Red Sings From The Treetops
"Red splashes fall trees,
seeps into every vein
of every five-fingered leaf.
Red swells on branches
Red: crisp, juicy
This Is Just To Say
What Girls Want
Girls want a lion with a great shaggy mane.
Girls want a horse fast and sure.
Girls want a coyote that sings with his heart.
Girls want an eagle, soaring through the mountains.
Girls want a breeze that whispers its name.
Girls want a snowfall that makes the world new.
Girls want a dog that wags all over.
Girls want a cat that purrs to the moon.
Girls want a hedgehog that carries its own armor
Just to let you know.
I have a poetry crush on Joyce Sidman!
