…Thanks also for a thin tanned lady;
and small girls who seek to ascend her garden’s gate.
for a brown faced boy soon to travel alone
and red feathered birds along the fence
before they flee to their canopies of green.
thanks for roofs that ward away wind and rain
and for places to curl ourselves and dream
when weariness issues a command
to cease such complicated seeking.
thanks for seeking; for weariness.
