Youth Revisited

                        Rebecca


I can hear Mama calling me over the tree tops,
Come home Rebecca---no in-between stops.


I told my friends on the next farm--- good-bye,

And as I walked home so happy and tired I could die.


The dirt road was hot in the summer heat,

But the warm sand felt good between my toes and feet.


My old dress is raggedy and torn,

My favorite farm dress---made me look forlorn.


My long blonde hair in pigtails down past my waist,

Mama called again---I made haste.


Papa came in from the fields,

He was followed by my brothers on his heels.


Our farm house was larger than most,

It gave an air of its country host.


Mama’s roses surround the house,

Papa smiled but---he was quite as a mouse.


He always kissed Mama when he came home,

They always held hands when they were alone.


So I am sixteen and the year is 1910,

Will I find someone to love again?


My boyfriend on the next farm,

Was boring---he lacked charm.


My brothers give guys the “Evil Eye”

Before they can say “Hello” it is “Bye.”


Now I will go to college Pa said,

I will go with my two brothers---Joe and Fred.


Who said being young was the thing,

I tell you this ---it does not make me sing.


Will I look back one day and state?

Those were the best days of my life---better not temp fate.

Maybe You Will Think of Me Someday


       I Talked to the Man in the Moon

Maybe you will remember how my blue

eyes shined with love each time I looked at you.


How my swollen lips desired being kissed,

And will I be missed?


How my silky skin trembled under your touch,

And maybe you missed it too---so very much.


And just maybe you will remember how much love
filled my heart,

I hope you are lonesome since we’ve been apart.


Do you sometimes remember---how good my body felt?

Pressed against your rippling muscles---my heart did melt.


And I remember how your fingers combed through my blonde hair,

While I trembled with pure joy of your touch---you said it was so fair.


Each day now the memories wash back against the
shores of my mind,

To wait for another love somewhere in time---I pray
he will be more kind.


Why you left me without a word,

Cruelty of that nature is unheard.


So if sometime you think I will take you back,

I will say, ”My Darling---I do not back track.”


I am a one chance---one man kind of gal,

You are pushing your luck with me Pal.


My life will go on in time,

 I will find another sweet love---so sublime.
