The Lover’s Almanac

Dear Muse,

a fine evenin’
a walk without
any definite purpose
a trail that loses itself
at the gate of a cemetery
near the edge of a mesa

buffalo grass, metal angel statue,
granite tombs, rocks, wind,
a forty mile view,
surround us on all sides

we sit on a tomb
and there, seated
in the dyin’ sunlight,
while the valley
and plains below
are already lost in shadow,
we talk together

the pure air playin’ round us,
the magnificent landscape
beneath our feet
impart a certain
serenity to thoughts

we stay up there late
talkin’ of what matters;
of beauty and sorrow
and as of old, we talk
of partin’, may it never happen

Bret you are right
it is a fine question
one I asked regularly
for about 40 years
On more than one
occasion, i thought
it was time but no
Reckon it was not
the right question,
for me, anyhow
Now I am asked out
And i just wanna
spin some vinyl,
and spin the totem
May it never wobble
