Beside the sea

A simple walk
along the sand
to dream daydreams
with you there &
to laugh & love
beside the sea
when time was long
& hearts were free.

So mired, in rubble neck deep.
So tired, in trouble, must sleep.
No rest, so to plead and connive.
I wrest to be freed, kept alive.

that’s right, in central Wisconsin, fall
snow very soon
ten camels live near by in a large field
fenced in yet free
munching, dancing as in the desert
