With Semi-Historical Background
R. Gerry Fabian

this quiet Pennsylvania early morning
we sit and watch the mist rise
off the flowing Delaware river
not very far from where
Washington crossed.
It is just about dawn
and the birds
seem especially chirpy.
You hold my hand
in just that certain way.
We haven’t spoken
in more than an hour.
Our eyes meet with anxious smiles.
The time to go
is about three miles up river
floating in the active current
without a care in the world.

  1. The last of R. Gerry Fabian’s current submissions, which I thought ideal for a Sunday morning.

  2. It’s good to want to believe relationships are so uncomplicated in Delaware on a Saturday night or after a full moon or perhaps in the androgynous waters of the river which could be
    shipped out around the world by land or sea. Fabulous Fabian poem however in its single-mindedness.

  3. Allie Marini Batts

    I must admit, I’m jealous of this person’s morning.
