In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • I Have a Memory of Blossoms
  • Sidney Saylor Farr (bio)

I stand on the deck of a shipin a bottle, and rememberhow rainfall ran creeks high.

I have a memory of blossomssurrounded by white-rock cliffs,and rolling hills of green.

Autumn leaves ceased flutteringwhen the cold wind stopped blowing,and hard-boned truth came running.

October darkness claims the day.The world has stopped the agesin a blue watered lake.

I have a memory of blossoms.I wait on deck for miracles. [End Page 11]
