Yard Dreams

from Anne’s album Bittersweet Street

yard dreams in the winter
of drinking the sun
yard stretches and yawns
anticipates fun

yard dreams of a bird bath
of trellises tall
of tiny pink roses
that climb a stone wall

yard dreams
don’t you
of a swinging gate
sweet corn
on a silver plate
me too

In soft watercolors
yard dreams lemonade
of gazing at clouds through
apple tree shade

yard has one ambition
returning a field
with a sparrow to sing
from an old wagon wheel

yard dreams
don’t you
of a swinging gate
sweet corn
on a silver plate
me too

yard steams in the rain
after hot sunny days
beneath young lovers kissing
in a barefoot embrace

yard dreams in the winter
yard naps in the fall
yard dreams of these things
or nothing at all
