THREE MORE POEMS

DREAM LOVER

Until The Real
Thing Comes Along
(could such imagery
possibly be a song*?)

*and could that song have been written in
1936 by Sammy Cahn, Saul Chaplin, Mann
Holiner, Alberta Nichols & L. E. Freeman?

WHEN MUSIC WAS MUSIC

Listen –
You can’t
Get there
From here.

HELLO, YOUNG POETS, WHEREVER YOU ARE

You can get there
from here ….
but you aren’t
there yet.

You can get far
beyond mere words ….
but not before
you hear the music.

You can get to
the hearts of others ….
but not until
you know your own.

You can get to
the Promised Land ….
but you must cry
for I may be wrong.
