MICHIGAN SENIOR POET LAUREATE
Sallie A. Hinds

THOUGHTS

I see the moon's reflection
Shimmering on the lake,
I hear the gentle breezes blow
And the whispering sounds they make.
I see the diamond starlight
In the satin Summer sky,
And hear the beat of many wings
Of night birds, as they fly.
I feel your presence close to me
Almost feel your loving touch...
These things I see and hear and feel
Are things I miss so much!
For time has wings, and in its flight
Steals the me nobody sees
It leaves me here...alone and sad...
With a grab-bag of memories!
