The Wandering Poet
Our Firefly Songs
On the Veneration of St. Valentine, 2022.
My love, I’ve lost the pretty little song
you used to sing so sweetly to the stars.
I carried it so far, brought it along
a piece of you that I could keep in jars,
unperishing, the years will melt away
the finer points of memory. I weep
for everything we lost, the brighter days
we never got to see…
