An Absence of Flowers

January 29th, 2014 by Magdalena Tabor

In answer to your question, Pete,                                     pete seeger
Have they not tossed them at your feet?
Were not the roses made as sweet
By their response.

In search of change for season’s sake,
A steady rain reverberates.
The dire question mark mistakes
The need for want.

In answer, Pete, we gather not
The Baby’s Breath, the Purple Phlox.
One wonders with a heavy heart
Where you have gone.

In search of change for our own sake.
No flowers, please, left at the gate.
Leave them to flourish in the wake
Of Seeger’s song.
