I'd give you the stars if I could. -24th September 2016.


To give the stars.

The fierce green hustle
Of the pine tops whistling;
It understands me
And the bounce of moonlight
That cried so much loneliness.
As you watch the night sky fall -
I'll lay beside you
And keep my hand outstretched
As to gather the stars -
And hold them in my palm.

The phrasing is especially felicitous in the first half of the poem, with "fierce green hustle" and "bounce of moonlight" ... excellent throughout!
