I listen to the rain --
To its tap, tap, tapping
To its boot-cadence tromping
And the distant snares
Of a hundred wind-up army men
With wax paper drums.

I won't be annoyed
By its tap, tap, tapping;
They're only make-believe --
These smiling tin soldiers...
Who have never really
Ever seen war.

Here, I share, with stark honesty, my life.

Felicia- Glad your back! Good stuff here!

Simple and vivid- a dream perhaps? I really like the brevity and wonderment of this.
