2021 Poems

Was Coleridge Too Simple?

So simple, this theme
Of morning and spring
The full moon sets
As the falcons sing
A day beginning
With promise
Upon the shadows of horizons
The sun to bring
Warmth to the new day
As the cold moon wanes
Nature’s ritual
As the seasons change
Returning the life
The rhythm
The song
To stick in our throats
To be hummed
All day long
This celebration
Of the simplest of things
This confirmation
of the season of growing
