POEMS by KARL WENDT


Karl Wendt

books are pleasant things
you can read them if you want to

*****
come grey dawn
so perfect and predictable
so give my tired wanderings
the peacefulness of rest

*****

we fold our hands
and close our faces
but underneath....
just think of summer sands

******

the sound of your
hair
burns like incense
in my mind

****
i sat among the pines
in the park
and listened to someone
play music in the dark

*****
a simple time
with apple wine
and daisies
spread upon a lap
