We Men of the Coles Back Door

.

We men of the Coles back-door

We who guard the gate

Whom rough the elements

Defy gravity’s attraction

Curse with every thought

.

We men of the Coles back-door

We who are gentle

Whom smile

Wish each other well

Openly share our thoughts and jokes

.

We are those

Of the hardest

And softest men

.
Dream You

.

If,

If I held this tightly

If I held this tightly blue

Found a box with ribbon

Gave it so to you

.

If,

If you saw this present

If you saw this gift so blue

Would you think just so of me

Would you think it due

.

If,

If you set this small dove free

Into the sky, so blue

Would you believe

(Perhaps just listen)

That the shadow the bird left

On the ground, growing

Bigger and bigger

Covered all the things I would give to you

And that eventually

I could give you the whole world

.

If,

If the shadow was too dark

Much to dark for you

I’ll make the sun come back so quick

Clouds only wouldn’t let the light through
