I keep some dried flowers in a glass

Cheerful faces of summers past

And it seems as if, hour by hour

The wrinkled faces of the flowers

Across the room the sun they track

Though vitality and life they lack

Is there some phantom that resides

That makes the flowers track the skys?

Or perhaps it is a memory

Of springtime and of plensentry

Before I plucked them one by one

Of when they sat and watched the sun

Between the dim and dusky trees When somber sunset falls away A flicker of light from a nearby house Brings comfort in the waning day I know that inside old dogs sleep With slow, grayed, tails thumpin

Isn't it lovely, When you wake before dawn To the muffled sound of little cat feet Of raindrops pattering on the ground Then, rising, you walk through the woods Where stars hang upon each bow and shak

Through sweat And through blood Do empires fade Through ink And through time Is poetry made Yet the pen is mightier than the sword drawing blood at every word
