VELDMAN, Vick


What matters

Small things remain: the quiet peace of rustling poplars,

the yellow of buttercups and grass growing green,

the smell of wood after a vernal shower,

a smile, a blush on girlish cheeks,

the warmth of your love’s body,

a child’s hand at the window,

the tear making clear:

“I’ll be there.”
