The Lovers’ Almanac 2 January – Can There Really be a Mornin’

Dear Zazie,  Contemplatin’ any changes with the New Year?  No plans to change anything here.  Here is today’s Lovers’ Almanac from Mac Tag dedicated to his muse.  Are you askin’ yourself if there can really be a mornin’?  Are you askin’ yourself where lies forgiveness?  Rhett

The Lovers’ Almanac

Dear Muse,

see it comin’
clearly
the mornin’
eyes and thoughts
reach for it

a gift of expression
or maybe just
for longin’

above the plain
light comin’ on
there, close
but is there ever
any goin’ back

This one can be attributed to riffin’ on some poems by Emily Dickinson.  The SOD is set to a poem by Dickinson.  One of my favorite ED poems is Wild Nights (249).  So here is her poem followed by the POD:

 

Wild Nights – Wild Nights!
Were I with thee
Wild Nights should be
Our luxury
 
Futile – the winds –
To a heart in port –
Done with the compass –
Done with the chart!
 
Rowing in Eden –
Ah, the sea!
Might I moor – Tonight –
In thee!

Can There Really be a Mornin’

Too imperceptible at first
Your love lapsed away
A quietness distilled in you
As twilight long spent

Gone our sequestered afternoons
The dusk drawn down on what we had
The mornin’ shone away
A harrowin’ Grace took its place
And thus, your light escaped
Into the beyond

Good mornin’ forever comin’
You got tired of me
How could I of you
But love did not want me
So goodnight love
Can forever last that long

I can look can I not
I can long can I not
When the West is red
From the settin’ sun
These mountains have a way
That pulls the heart across the plains

You are not so far forever,
I chose love, love chose me not
So please take a Cowboy she spurned
Are you not so fair forever

Can there really be a mornin’
Is there such a thing
As forgiveness
Can I see it from the mountains
If I were as tall as they
Can I get there by horseback
Can I take a direct flight
Or must I change planes in Denver

Can it be in some distant land
Oh some Renaissance Man, or
Some philosopher from beyond
Please to tell a Cowboy

Where the place called forgiveness lies
Can there really be a mornin’
