A primrose a mayflower

A primrose a mayflower

A primrose a mayflower
           a new time and place
a happening of the heart
           in my altered circumstance
Now that the temperature
           has dropped what I long for
is the whisper of a new world
           and an open hand to beckon me
an open mind to embrace me
           no longer to be merely a maybe
Time has me by the neck
           I want it to cease and desist
to put the black cat
           back in the bag for now
