POETRY

Summer Joys

Echoes of a barn
Cows shuffling to their places
Metal stanchions closing
Milk rhythmically entering a bucket
Tails swatting flies
Kittens lapping milk
Echoes of a barn
(1991)

Oh little firefly
Comforting me with your light
So small, so much might.

Rushing

Down

The

Rapids

In

A

White

Water

Raft

Exhilarating!
