Many Years Later

Go down

Many Years Later  Empty Many Years Later

Post  mikeschultz on Sat Feb 25 2012, 09:01

Asleep in bed, I dream of the marshes
And know I've been gone from home far too long.
But which home? The marshes of Tangier Sound
Or the swamps of grass where a cypress log
Canoe is the best means to get around?
Back to my marsh’s warm salted breezes,

How many bones does the marsh mud still hold
In its dark embrace? Men, and women too,
More than a few have disappeared. The Bay
Is quite good at keeping its secrets. Who
Among us might do as well, best not say.
I roll over. Can’t go back. I’m too old.

And I dream of seas of tawny marsh grass
And shanties on poles, with plastic for glass.
