  • I too went looking for an audience
    plied my trade as best I could,
    like you, rewarded with love returned
    & a small faithful gathering of birds.

    In earnest I write but for them
    unmoved by a world I don’t know,
    like you, I need a hand to hold
    & a face that looks into mine.

    These few then will be my family
    my muse & whimsical care,
    like you, nary a moment more for love
    wanting what’s already there.
