Poem: “Not Just Yet”


Not Just Yet

Where the roads you have known and walked on bend Come down this day to the
river with me, Where the current runs so wide descend, A long boat waiting

Seats on deck, there‚Äôs room for more –
Has someone used that seat before?

You will not cross today but ride
Along the bank where willows hide
Their lank green leaves in opacity,
Who lives there your soul will see

Another time, but not just yet
Nor will we leave the dock till noon –
What you see you will forget
But what there is you will see soon
