A four lane
Divided highway –
Speed: 80!

The photo is mine of I-10 in the Texas Hill Country
with the spring flowers blooming.

Have the right of way
Since they weigh.

Save for the traffic and the trains,
Would make a sound as thin and sweet
As trees in country lanes.

Upon a country tree.

Oh, little leaves that are so dumb
Against the shrieking city air,
I watch you when the wind has come, –
I know what sound is there.

Upon thyself thy beauty’s legacy?

Profitless usurer, why dost thou use
So great a sum of sums, yet canst not live?
For, having traffic with thyself alone,
Thou of thyself thy sweet self dost deceive.
Then, how, when nature calls thee to be gone,
What acceptable audit canst thou leave?
Thy unus’d beauty must be tomb’d with thee,
Which, used, lives th’ executor to be.
