Old Man at the Side
of His Rickety House
By Walt Phillips

another winter's night behind
he views again his
spare but well- loved
he has discovered
not so much sense nor importance
to other than
these small hills
this austere sky
the calendar elms and
up the road are generations
gone calm
granted that knowing
a man may one day find
pleasure and contentment
things that require
very little fuss
