March 1984


how do I say thank you

for a gift so finely wrought

what expressions can I use

to express to you

my unbounded joy


such a thought deserves much

so much more than I can give

in haste

love is one gift

payable only in kind

but how?

to you

to all

to what


I know!

Ill climb the highest peak

there to snatch a piece of the sun

to put it into life

the joy you made

eventually returned

through another


“Thank you!” will have to do



This was when Ev gave

me one of her poems

as a friendship poem.
