shadows of March

 

when dusk fills in my windows outside
the veranda is secretly waiting
where the air hush quietly and i am rocking
pacing back and forth in my front yard
i’ve a little feeling this is unique
and the sky is turning deliciously dark
while the moon settles in his full silver image
the shadows of march appear handsomely
and i do not pain the past anymore

    “shadows of March” by Chester Maynes. I felt it truly resonate on the second reading. I bet this one would be beautiful read aloud. Thank you Chester, for this poem.

    “I’ve a little feeling this is unique” – the contraction just makes that line perfect.

    oh wow!!! i love the way you write!! something about the way you play with the words like ” i do not pain the past anymore” or even “while the moon settles in his full silver image”. It makes it so easy to picture. well done!
