She'll Never Tell...

 The farm in this photo is the old home place


That once-upon-a-childhood leap
Now seems so long ago
Which dreams she kept,
which she released
No one will ever know

Life held and holds both highs and lows
Its roller-coaster thrill
unravels in its
ebbs and flows
Whispers she'll never spill

The heart is like a cavern, oh,
Filled with love's give and take
Where what we hold
And then let go
Leaves dream-lands in its wake

Blessed beyond Wishing's boldest wage
She knows want's drill full-well
But sets Her sights
beyond the page
Of poems she won't spell

Janet
