And as you go door to door
-stay clear of monsters.

The Wisdom Of Not Listening

Nobody, they said,
Would be able to do it
-yet somebody did!-
With everyone still talking
Of the sheer futility.

The Gift You Are

Moon The night you were born,
I held you tight in my arms
-hardly believing.

Drawing the Moon
By Edward S. Gault

You came up to me
With your little red book
The one you put the stickers in,
And a crayon.
You told me that
You wanted me
To draw the moon.
So I drew a line for the horizon,
Long vertical lines became trees.
A river flowed down through them.
Then I drew stars.
Finally, I drew the moon,
And filled in the sky dark blue.
Because you wanted to see me draw,
And there would come a time
When you will not care what I can do.
