friend poem

i saw the first pear
i am the wind that wavers
a mile behind
i am old and blind
all within and all without me
calm as that second summer
that strange companion came on shuffling feet
beautiful
the old west, the old time
under a spreading chestnut tree
i do not pray for peace
beautiful, tragical faces
birds against the april wind
