A Poem by Ed Hart




it would be nice

not to be bent

like this tree

carrying the curve of the hill

the wind does it

or someone in childhood

who plants fear in our roots

it would be nice

to disappear

into a woman's heart

dancing can do it

until we call for more wine

to fuel our crowded feet

no sense wanting

what wasn't made or graced

it's just i can't help noticing

this old world growing older

' it would be nice - to disappear - into a woman's heart '... such beautiful words.

Methinks you've disappeared into a great many hearts, Sir Hart..

And the world lives on and on while we tarry along with it and get by the best we can; rather nice to dance and enjoy the wine as one braces for the gales of life.

Those bent trees that influence out moments, a womans heart and a mans can come together in this way as well.

This is fantastic.....a great addition to a collection of prose that should be gathered for a book. ...it would be nice to disappear into a woman's heart...wow that is dripping with truth. Until we call for more wine to fuel our crowded feet....I am lost in that lines beauty...simple words full of painted layers. A grand write.

the river carries us ever forward, but listening to its waters, we can perhaps have a few moments in the waves
