River Night

River Night

 

You loved,

Lilac,

In the spring of ’82

Beneath – was it? –

The oaks on Greentree Road.

I road home father’s car

Like an errant Hercules

Wondering about creation.

Return to me in the springtime,

When the leaves appear

Like your love and kiss

Which sear the dark nights

Of April, June and September.
