  October's Child

HE WALKS UNEQUALED


HE WALKS UNEQUALED

*

Quietly, she sat sketching tomorrow's visitation
Blue skies gathered outside the windowpane
Copper colored tulips beside a cobble stone lane
A dress of blue gingham, a scent of elation

~_-_-_-_~
*
They would speak of childhood's halcyon days
With fingerprints of memory deeply embedded
A leafstorm of yesterdays, now neatly threaded
Into paper doll families and backyard clichés

~_-_-_-_~
*
Would he recognize the old clapboard house?
The man with a mind equated to an apotheosis
His museum of words could induce hypnosis
While commonly discussing his' tufted titmouse'

~_-_-_-_~
*
She placed the quill to the waiting creation
Silently, she'd kept him wrapped inside her mind
A living book of intelligence, the presidential kind
He walked unequaled, meriting arrant admiration!

Il balader inégalé
