When You Said Hi


Yesterday when you told me hi
and flashed at me
that hundred watt smile
it did catch me by surprise.

Into momentary disequilibrium
I was suddenly thrown
because for reason unknown
you were speaking to me!

I thought, “Could this be? ”
After months of passing me by
perhaps you finally think
I’m worth your time.

As I recovered from my shock attack
and said to you hi back
my subconscious said “Yes! ”
You would make a fine new friend.

But it all made sense when you spoke again;
all you wanted was to borrow my pen.

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
