“About the world and beyond,
But I couldn’t fly.”

The Lyric Unveiled

-

Lyric
I’ll dance with you / Across your dream, wear / My big old heart on my sleeve. / I’m looking for the dream / I had when I was young. / Now, I’m broken, unsteady. / Limping west / On Highway 99 with you / My only sunshine. / I see you in the shadows, / Believe I can wait forever / For one more dance, one more dream, / One more call.

I Love You Today

-

John F. Dresen began writing poetry a few months after the death of his beloved wife Phyllis. At first, he tried to write of his loss, but soon found solace in writing to his bride as though he were speaking to her as they had done during their twenty-nine years of marriage. With his characteristic wry humor, John writes, “I can just see St. Peter saying, ‘Phyllis, you’ve got mail!’ “

Where My Imagination Hides

-

When I arrived at the Siletz School for the after-school program to write poems, the first thing the kids said was, We don’t know how to write poems! But they know what their houses do while they are at school, and they know what their imaginations like to eat.
