Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

1974


1974
was a year
of warm summer fun
The nighthawks flew
in the lights
of darkness
And trees crashed
in warm
winter storms
And love was
a kiss
upon a breast
And touch upon
willing lips
and fingertips
And life was a joy
to possess
And a joy
to profess

    As I enjoy going back in time myself when writing poetry, this appeals to me.
    1974 I was working on the Railways laying down track.

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
