March Selections 1 & 2

Night lingers endless,
Moonlight illuminates
The curtains of my room.
A single bird sings
Startling the silence,

--Patrick Mizelle

First Walk With You

Long trees slender lean their distant heads upon the sky
Clouds gather there and breathe above the glade
Where you and I have lain upon the cool pine-leaf
Scattered turf, and look aloft, beyond, above our
Rain-damped place on earth.

Dark birds wheel and wandering turn
Their spiral roads; the morning breeze stirs
Long pines' leaves and sends soft scents below.
Dizzy is this time of waiting, silent turning
Strong hearts beating; Waiting, listening, silent seeing
Long trees pray their morning greeting.

--Amos Clifford
