Spring Series #4

Thomas Pennington

A friend of mine says
(or doesn't say, but thinks)
Disapproving safety thoughts

Disapproving safety thoughts
While I bound across a log
Above a creek

I can't make him feel
The simple joy of risk
The urge which strikes
The life I lead

Advent'rous bore
Tedious with
and Excursions
Over logs above a creek

Or so I feel that he must think
He will not feel
I cannot think
Above that disapproved-of Creek
