I meant this as a private message to Mike.  Okay, so what of it.  Now everybody 
knows.  [Blush spreads across cheeks:]  I like Mike's poetry.  I also 
appreciate David Ritchie's more playful concoctions.  Enough schmaltz.  Gotta 
watch that To box.

                  1

In spring when I put my ear to a tree
and told you I could hear
the surging sap,
you laughed,
and I laughed,
we laughed together all that acorn-making summer.

In October when I touched you,
you looked away,
and I heard the leaves die,
But it was you who was crying.

                2

A sudden summer rain
we ducked into a small cafe
and drank beer and watched
the rain spark silver on the black street
there was no need to speak
we knew

               3

In the city, trees seem confused
they drop their leaves like yellow pamphlets
to blow along the streets.
I feel for them and tell them
of forest floors years deep.





Mike, your stuff is amazing.

PS.   I hope D. Ritchie will continue his contributions and not leave me
standing naked in the town square.
