  Cover: Only the Wind May Speak

Only the wind may speak
and fret for voice,
whispering through the trees
of summer and sunflowers.

Sturdy rope and weathered wood,
friends reaching toward heaven
grasping the branches for purchase
wanting to go higher.
In the garden of golden dreams
swaying and swinging.

Girl on a swing,
a natural lattice stretching toward the sun.
