:) Love Poem For A Wedding - (1976 chapbook)

I love:
The tides that ebb and flow
And marbled lights on broken roads
The warmth of poetry within
Evening caress that transcends sin.

I love:
The birds that were duped by an early thaw
To mid-winter song, and wonder -
If they were so very wrong?

I ask you to take this ageing ring of gold
Companion touchstone of a first communion
And to hold its trust as we will mold
What God shall join for evermore.

A Poet's Poem on Christmas Eve – 2011

I wish that poetry could help me see
Life’s situations with a little more clarity
Those moments when I go red – if not voice violent - hot
So that in the predicament I’d find a more calm and gentle spot
Such as discovering the dog’s shit upon my sole
At the precise moment when I am attempting to roll.
Bill Grace



A Post William Cullen Bryant Thanatopsis

The throng that came filled the church
The box can only hold a body
A diamond, a life - the box is not the end
It can not hold a soul
Nor the numbers in our church so bold
To declare by their presence that death is not the end.

There is that which lives beyond the frame
It is our spirits that roam the earth for good or ill
It matters not that we are still
For we always live in others.
Bill Grace



A Very Dirty Deal II

As one who owned three Chevrolet Vegas
My loyalty to: 'Buy American' - can not be deeply questioned.
Aunt Eleanor's lectures on balance of payments
Struck a deeper mark than she would ever have guessed.
The Vega despite its 'Car of the Year' status
Was a General Motors disaster.

If memory serves correctly
The press didn't seem to want to talk about it.
So, their recent drubbing of Toyota was of interest.
Perhaps the issue even greater than who owns them
Is if you have forgiven Yamamoto.

Note in Explication Isoroku Yamamoto was the Japanese admiral who engineered the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor that galvanized American entry into World War II.
