Monday Poems: "Spirit Happy" -- by Michael Revere


thank the beggar
dressed in daisies
offer roses
to a thorn
carry castles
for the queenless
bless the bishop
for his scorn


plant sunflowers
in the morning
leave wild horses
by the sea
gather children
lost to darkness
scorn the lizard
long last free

                                     for Sadie, Chuck, Andy, Sylivia
