Reminded Why I Love Buying Used Books

Found in the first few pages of The Tao of Pooh:

to S-F:


hi. hello.


haven't we met before?

I mean prior to the encounter

in the line-up.

where we had to hand in papers

dealing with matters of consequence?

Well, maybe not in this lifetime

but perhaps during a previous.

as water
lilies
in a pond

with toads.

Then, this was also found:

in a park

wind is laughing silently
but machine truck eighty feet away

makes rude remarks

i see a canoe made of branchestallic construct

with a few colourful symbols on it.

i see its shadow...
mr. rodgers isn't here

but the sun plays peek-a-boo with me

radiating crystals of light

through the rumbling of leaves

white clouds. heavenly incense

and tall tree, next to me

I am happy to be your friend.
