Homecoming

“Homecoming”

by Wayne Gagnon
(for Daniel and Julianne)

Your ‘cycles and buses…
…and fast ticking clocks.
From school to your job…
…it’s quite a few blocks.

Such busy, such bustle…
…midnight and midday.
(Hey!) The train’s heading west…
…I’ll meet you half-way!

Despite snow, rain or sleet…
…or icy-cold crunch.
We’ll have dinner or tea…
…or breakfast or lunch.

(We’ll) trade presents and stories…
…we’ll have coffee and pie.
We’ll climb to the rooftop…
…and watch the night sky.

We’ll leave late if you want…
…no need to hurry.
I’m your ride to the east…
…no trouble.  No worry.

Your visits seem short…
…(even) when they’re extended.
How was our visit?…
…I’ll answer, “Quite splendid!”
