My Wife in Our First Year


A knocking on the middle aged knees
Walking the Southwest Florida Lane
In late spring with my first and only wife.
She teaches about the rhododendrons.

She lived in this neighborhood before
And being a carpenter in her younger years
She instructs on the nature of the homes
All to have some time alone
With me, her new husband, in the morning air.
