Two poems in the summer 2006 Loch Raven Review


No time to think of running, when the bear
Crashes huffing gruh! gruh! gruh! from brush
Just yards away, and angry now speeds up....

Where Troubles Melt

for Frances Gumm

Out of this awkward girl, mostly elbows, knees,
Voice, and too grown for the role, the song keys
Ever upward and on, dulcet harmony and rise....

James, it's so good to hear your typed voice here.

"As if a mouth too old to name released you"-- is such a wonderful line. "Charge" is a strong poem.
