An Ode To Death
I waited the winter, long and cold and you never came.
I waited with spring along with its flowers to bring---you never came.
I waited all summer long, hot and dry it was --you never came.
I waited through fall, its dead scattered leaves and all --you never came.
My Garden Queen
I met you in the garden, it was nearly dusk
Must I kiss those ruby lips I thought I must
So I put my arms around you, and you laughed and sighed
Crying, don't ever leave me for without your love I would die
