Weighty our wiles

Leave a comment

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard, 1981

Whistling winds and weeping willows
and wet weather.

Weighty our wiles.

Whether we watch with wonder,
whether we wait with woe
without westward wander,

whether we will where willows weep
(whereby winds whistle),
we go gainfully galloping
groping ground greedily

by hand and foot
to an oasis of thought
in this desert called time.
