Gray-White Geese

by Ethel Mortenson Davis

Put your arms around me
to keep the desert winds
from blowing through me.

Now!
As the snow clouds have gathered
like gray-white geese
gathering on water.

The Reader

by Ethel Mortenson Davis

He has taken
his dinner with delight,
relishing each morsel,
tasting each bite
by rolling it
on his tongue.

He mouths the words,
forming them
on his lips,
smiling,

as he escapes
to his world —
the one called ecstasy.
