Times Change | Poem

 
Times Change

 Greener than it's ever been 
 Tall too 
 Wind escapes through the holler' 
 Flowing delicately through 
 Leaves fall 
 Times change 
 Been here for awhile 
 Much longer it will stay 
 Essence of a different time 
 I hear the echoing 
 He's talking to me now 
 My soul is rising like a dream 
 No, it's real 
 Listen to me, I speak the truth 
 No mischief here 
 Wait, I'm not alone 
 They speak too quiet to hear 
 Now only me and you 

- Robert Jackson   1993

For Christopher and his rememberence 

to Robert     to Moongate
