for rosemalynn

who will agree that Jim Carter is a poet
who writes about Dylan Thomas?

there are things Jim loves,
the way peace and purity attach to doves:

the lumber yard with piles of logs,
the forest care trucks along the lonely woods

the highly pointed tails of quail birds,
the even air under Saint Mary's breath

rosemalynn and her light blue look,
the flow and path of a brand new brook

autumn's enchantment settles
when Samantha Paris rains praise to googles.
