Recalling Reading Thomas Hardy As A Young Man

Poem By Forrest Hainline

Thomas Hardy -
so touched me when I was young
I took my copy of Jude the Obscure
and threw it against a wall so hard
the pages all exploded off the spine.
How passionate that young man. And now.
Remembering. Not a bad idea for a poem. . . .

In all its uncertainties
A gift to open

Of couple-colored autumn
Assaults our senses

Kiss Kiss

Kiss kiss kiss I will
Again and again hold you
Touch you taste you kiss


A wilderness cry
Is mute with no one to hear
God’s voice before time

Lips like holy wine
I taste you and I believe
You’re my sacrament
