Lehigh County
By Rebecca L. Morrison

I felt you taking off yesterday,
bitten by Northern winds.
Your lips visited my cheek
and I blushed, I held you closer.

I heard you taking off yesterday,
hundreds of feet away.
And the wires resounded with
beating hearts,
my lengthy questions.

I watched you taking off this morning,
'neath a blanket of slumbered eyes.
And your white chariot blazed its way to
better health,
raw hearts,
my girlish anticipation.

But as you took off,
I felt neither flight nor fancy:

only rivers of yearning
as they clung to my chin.
