BIRTHDAY ONE ~

Full Circle by The Byrds on Grooveshark





In A Cabin, In A Wood



It’s a good day —
my work boots are off
socks too


I have rolled up
5 inch cuffs
on my jeans


I’m in a short sleeve
green shirt
no belt


we cut the grass
now heavenly
barefoot


my love is wild ex-
cept for the sun dress
she’s thrown on


waiting for a rain
that never does
come


we draw buckets of
water for new plants
from the farm pond


cordwood
we cut crackles dry
in all this sun


let the satellites that
circle the earth
try to find this










In My Hour Of Darkness by Gram Parsons on Grooveshark





happy birthday susan!

Cheers, Mike,

because we know there is a Happy Birthday! as well in your household today.

Great songs, each one a gem, on your radio show this evening out of Arkansas. Here's the link for anyone wishing to lend an ear.

all's well, Bob

belated birthday cheers of joy, Susan, California Star(s)

Just so happens that "In A Cabin, In A Wood" (although one of almost every poem in the volume reached to me) and Guthrie's "California Stars" (out of yet another great American songbook) are all time favorites til death do us part. Love to you and to Bob. ~ Donna

Thank you, Donna,
and love right back at you with rainfall (finally) and a re-blossomed river which we can hear again late into the night. . .along with a moonlight and blackness come August period.

Meet you in the songbook
all's well, Bob & Susan
