The Door

Doors with cut out crosses

The Door

How lovely that you walked across the street
Knocked, so politely at my door
As I went
Walking ’round the block
My dogs and

Wasn’t even there
To greet you
But I returned
To knock
I almost skipped
To the front door of your white house
I find you there
A little cat and mouse
We played.

How lovely that you live across from me
Lady Wisdom, friend,
Passion for poetry goes between your house
And mine
Giving  gifts of boxes and origami
Laying them gently into my hand
Your words like honey drop, drip, drop
I lap up every syllable I hear, I understand

Don’t stop living two doors down
Life is richer when you come to town

My friend I pray that it will be

A good long while
Before we see
Come knocking at our

Swing wide the gates of freedom
Between you and me
And sweet poetry.
