To offer up
to surrender
the wild flailing
of arms
and tangled hair
and the mad scamper
of happy feet
going deeper and
deeper
into love’s nest
those summer woods
with their sprinkling
of sun
and honey bees
and bushels of
wildflowers
over wood and fence
and the cool cool grass
under thirsty feet.
Oh happy feet,
lead me
into summer’s golden maw.
