BY STARS & TULIPS

WHILE words choke when love

for you springs my heart

hush gentle hammer-beat!

Mind full as splash-colored

Fields oh sun! Warmth as passion!

My beloved dearest one.

There across the creek

below the Oak by the root

tulips and stars two lips

as ours — the precious time!

The secrets so sweet as the

twinkle within your

eye my loveliest one!

From one to two now three!

TODAY’S GONE

Standing on the corner
of a street called life
i can see the freeway
and all my dreams

they’re rushing high
they’re rushing by

And a beggar begs for a dollar
the police for a crime
And a judge reminds me
of the nature of laws
within men’s twisted minds

so today i lose it
i lose the hope
so today heaven’s heavy
lead with a knotted rope

And heaven’s lost my heart
— today’s gone heaven’s lost
my heart and mind
today’s gone
so i say so long
with living time
standing on the corner
of a street called life
