For a moment
take me away
from the mottled colors
far from the music
of brass trumpets
for I long to hear the sound
Huddled pines stand,
upon the splendid mountains,
with balsam fragrance:
this very moment,
before the egrets

My heartfelt thanks to you. I am so glad this poem touched you.
My Dee, my dearest Dee……..these words steal my breath, and play against a heart that knows their song. I grieve with you the loss and envy you the gain…… Beautiful. ~ Love, Bobbie

Thank you, Lorna. I can just picture the egrets dancing and alighting to the music of the oboe. I love the sound of the oboe, too. I am so glad you like this poem. Love, Dee
