He Who Hesitates Is Found

A
Mysterious portal
Opened wide

I wonder
What’s on the
Other side

Pick up the pace
And quicken
My stride

I wonder
What’s on the
Other side

Time is short
I
Must decide

I wonder
What’s on the
Other side

A colorful landscape
To tantalize
The eye

I wonder
What’s on the
Other side

An exotic place
In which
To reside

I wonder
What’s on the
Other side

I think
My time here
I will bide

Home and family
Are
On this side

There’s Nothing Quite Like Trees

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair
Upon whose bosom snow has lain
Who intimately lives with rainPoems are made by fools like me
But only God can make a tree

-Joyce Kilmer-
