To Yearn

sitting in the woods beneath the shade

canteen full of lemonade

handful of trail mix


rustic lean-to fashioned from felled sticks

country life for country hicks

tucked away sublime


to return from here would be a crime

where the woodland creatures chime

yet still she’s haunted

cursed to leave

to return

and to yearn
