The first crescent moon
Above the apple blossoms
An ocean of stars

Framed by the kitchen window
The woman with bright red hair

Saturday is free
Inspired by a good friend
Bread in the oven

He pauses to read the mail
There is a letter from mom

"No news is good news"
"A penny saved is a penny earned"
"A stitch in time saves nine"

At the University
A lecture on Folk Wisdom

As the bare branches
Bending in the freezing wind
In the prarie wind

Warmth seems to flow through the gloves
As they hold each other's hands

Walking to the park
Something they enjoy doing
As a weekend treat

Just as the sun has risen
Before the heat of the day

There is a slight breeze
The sound of the maple leaves
Resembles wind chimes

A flock of swans headed south
Smoothly coasting from cloud to cloud
