A Weathering of Years

A Weathering of Years
June 2015

Here green-leafed memories invade the mind;
Here our young profuse acts luxuriate;
And then leaf-fallen times can be defined;
And then the old, snow-fallen thoughts await.

These poems explore our ages by the season:
Child’s adventure in untidy garden
With its ancient, stooped gardener; young poet
Begging in Seattle; celebrations
Of birth, birthdays and of deaths; old Ibsens,
Restless in their solace; backyard elegy;
And more beside, all etched in shifting verse.
