Summer-heart Resolve

I will not pine for faded flowers
Or for the wine of jaded hours
Lest I should let a moment drip
Unnoticed, from my fingertip
Missing what could have been because
I looked too long at what once was

  2. We do share in the reluctance of relinquishment, don't we?:) Use it whenever you like. I think each year passes a little more swiftly with startling awareness that soon we are old, and our children have flown...


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
