That Spring – Joan McNerney


I wanted to take off my clothes.
Be naked under the sun.
Swim through one thousand
lakes or lie on grass…
so warm warm with you.

Count every leaf on every
tree. I’ve always wanted
to do that. And stars too.
Come my Michael we can
climb hills where
no one will ever see us.
