Tag: National Poetry Month

Poem by Charles A. Waugaman

GARDEN TEA PARTY

Listen to the leaves
of robin song
spill into the rain:

parched dreams expanding
and staining the
long afternoon with

poignant fragrances:
blending past and
hope with vibrant joy.

more beautiful books
on my desk
than I can read

thoughts of my mother
and our shared love of language

some spaces only God can fill

language and books
and all the conversations
among artists who
may not know
one another

fill my heart too

and Spring today

from my April archives:

beginning
in the area
where we had
to take a tree down
new peony leaves
