O Furry Sage (2009)


O Groundhog

Do you lie awake perhaps

The pale moonlight trickling into your burrow

Remembering springs past

Dreaming of springs yet to arrive


Do you find yourself on the cusp

Yearning to turn the page and begin anew

Wondering what the future holds


Do you listen for the voice of the wind,

The waves on the shore

Do you know in your heart

What impulse drives you onward


Please tell your secret

O furry sage
