This little three stanza poem is probably my all-time favorite. Some poems take a lot of work, and some are easy. This one I did not have to write, it just happened.
by Mike Patrick
To walk among the evergreens
With the winds whispered sigh.
To walk among the nesting birds
And watch them startled fly.
I find peace among the evergreens
On a cloudy springtime night,
As I halt and listen for the silent wings
Of an owl in midnight flight.
Oh, there’s peace among the evergreens,
But tis peace that I can’t share.
The evergreens won’t talk to me
When someone else is there.
