A birthday present from poet John Del Bagno
For Sally Love Saunders
I take joy in you, Sally,
The same way a heart warms watching a little sister
Playing down by the creek.
With knees in the mud,
You revel in the moss, the salamanders
And all this passing world.
Walking along the stream
You have found a clear pool with subtle swirls
And there you build your poems.
With just the perfect leaf
And just the right sticks
You craft rafts
To drift your poems into the current
For others downstream to find.
