A chapter in the book Poems

Love and Anticipation

by Bill Schott

Love seems to slip by,

becoming a brief gust of wind which whisks past us.

It leaves youth, innocence, and anticipation

in an old house by the woods.

We could visit that rustic home,

where bare closets and tiny chairs

provide hiding places and comfort for memories,

but we cannot stay.

There are new structures to inhabit,

with closets to fill and chairs to arrange.

Youth and innocence can live here,

as anticipation whistles through the eaves.
