Here’s a short piece that deserves to have some music put to it…

when i get home, i’ll write you a sonnet

but i haven’t left yet

when i get home, i’ll sing you a song
and wrap it around your finger

you’ll hear the mountain lion’s roar
as it echoes in the valley

you’ll see the fleeing eagle
as she brings food to her young

you’ll see the sky split and thunder
when i come home

when i get home, i’ll write you a sonnet
but i haven’t left yet…
