Such Things – a poem by F.C. Shultz

Such Things
by F.C. Shultz
 
Whatever is
like a timely sunrise;
meditate here. 
 
Whatever is                                                                                             
like a spring doe;
linger long here. 
 
Whatever is
like a shared tricycle;
turn these over often. 
 
Whatever is
like a swaddled firstborn;
consider these.
 
Whatever is
like a steaming cobbler;
marvel here.
 
Whatever is
like a crayoned scribble;
ponder here. 
 
If there be any
open-armed apology;
dwell here. 
 
If there be any
open-handed surrender;
dwell here.
