Homecoming (April 17, 2013)

April 17, 2013 § 2 Comments

Says NaPoWriMo, “Early on in the month, I asked you to write a valediction — a poem of farewell. Today, let’s try the opposite, and write poems of greeting.” I did, and below is my greeting, or would be greeting, as things stand.


If you were an emperor,
I would welcome you with perfumed limbs and painted toes.

If you were a warrior,
fresh berries and gentle doeskin would rest near your fire.

If you were a craftsman,
I’d rub oil in your hands and have stew in your dish.

If you were my love,
I’d give you my heart.
