One More Time
by Esther Thornburg
(Cantril, Iowa, USA)
Record the treasures of the mind
In a poem, silver lined.
Keep a master copy for another time.
May want to read it one more time
When grown too old to write a line.
Treasured thoughts live on for a later find.
Share with someone new to rhyme
Ignite their treasure search and find
A friendship true, clear to the end of the line.
