Boyhood Recollections Of Home

the crinkling rivulet

close by

a patch of violets

* * *

on a high apple branch

an oriole's nest

lilacs in bloom

* * *

coiled around

the cookie jar

a blacksnake

* * *

morning-glory

at dusk

the bee's trapped hum

* * *

another scorcher

powder-fine dust

on the roadside ragweed

* * *

the blond curl

of the flypaper

a buzzing triad

* * *

huckleberry bush

too high for netting

feast for birds

* * *

rain on the roof

all snuggled in bed

with his panda
