Great Grandfather’s House

May 24, 2009

Great grandfather lived his life
upon a hill
at the edge of the forest

His son moved four hundred yards
to live his life
at the edge of the forest

Father moved four hundred miles into the burg
to live his life far away
from the edge of the forest

His son dreamed of places even farther away
but returned to live his life
at the edge of the forest

This poem is an example from yet unpublished volume
currently identified as "I wish it was Texas"
by Yumatzuga (2005-2020).
