Autumn Winds

(July 22 1993 / Sanfrancisco, California)

Under


Under the dark
My mind races
Pictures of black and white
Rush by in a blur
And the daylight blinds
Because under the stars
My painted pictures come alive
While the rope burns
And my letters lie open
There's a change in the weather
And I stand drenched in the desert
Under the moon
My sighs fade with the day
And I dance with a perfect stranger
The road is long
And it's so far away
Under the dark
I miss the sun
Where my snow now lies
I miss the rain
Where it all lies dry
All I need is light burning low
And under my eyes
Is where it all survives

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
