For Erika

Schollenberger Park, Petaluma

The empress walked with them through the forest.
Gladness and goodwill became one.
Then she walked on.
Mists from mornings of life and light
Thoughts she spread to our delight.
Sadness held, as sadness is
Goodwill and gladness move it on.
Dark of night now light of day
Held in morning’s inspiration.
Looking for the right thing to say
