Laughing Eyes

that boy ball-tosses with
pretty young girls
they romp and scatter
in the afternoon sun

later
after fun and games
the tempo increases,
quick kisses in the dark
and in a few years
he’ll be grown up
serious and hard-working,
lost innocence

Richard & Esther Provencher invite you to read their first of three novels ‘FOOTPRINTS” now available from www.synergebooks.com. “Someone’s Son” and “Into The Fire” will also be available soon by the same company. These books were written during the first several years while Richard was recovering from his stroke, which felled him in 1999. He is still recovering. The link to “FOOTPRINTS” is as follows: http://www.synergebooks.com/ebook_footprints.html
