Weary summer

Summer’s holiday
The rushing Russian River
Loss of one so dear.

What kind of debt is that
When a man gives his life
Trying to save the woman he loves.
What kind of debt must she feel
And what legacy has he created
A debt is not guilt
It is an obligation to honor
By giving a full life.

Qué clase de deuda es
que Cuando un hombre da su vida
que Trata de guardar la mujer que adora.
Qué clase de deuda debe se siente Y lo
que legado tiene creó UNA deuda no es culpa
es una obligación de honorar dando una

Summer front yard
The green sprigs of spring
Are now dry stalks of summer
Like youth’s ambition

Ask humility
A life in purgatory
Shows me the hard way

Billowing more clouds
Does the wind get tired out there
Going with the flow?

Masochistic fool
Who would ever buy a cat?
Asking for trouble
