Kyeren Regehr Literature Poetry

Am the lyrics of your love ditty

Kyeren Regehr

granting of a penny wish
something beloved
                 Am truly all
those hackneyed phrases
shopworn and cloying

        Am madly
tripping light-headed
                      smouldering the grass
with each step bursting
all the roses golden
                  everything I touch
