A Short Country Drive


along the roadside
black-eyed susans
waving hello
blackberries
at the roadside
remembering Mama
horse flies swarming
cows udder high in water
mooing for raintree clouds
flowers in the field
fleet faces in the crowd
waving good bye

For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
