A Time for Love

He sat listening to Ahmed Jamal
tickle Poinciana and But Not for Me,
and Once Upon a Time and he went
weak in the knees remembering
what was once upon a time. He
turned to his wife and said, “I have
to stop looking back.” He looked
out on the warm, southern sky.
“I have to start looking forward.”
And then A Time for Love started
and he thought of his wife and
how this is the time for love before
the Midnight Sun sets.
