BrooksLooks @ Maple Road

Maple Road
Brooks Bradbury (1973)

There was a home that held all I wanted
A girl, two sons, one very human dog
I wonder if that house is ever haunted
By the great love I gave that catalogue

If a high heat my absent heart still throws there
Be fixed and focused by Time’s burning glass
A gentle fragrance should forever blow there
And flowers sparkle gaily in the grass

There is no need for flame or warmth of fire
No rosy hearth to cheer or snuggle by
There burns the sum of all my soul’s desire-
It was and is and will be till I die!

(An excerpt from the anthology “Backlash”, published by my grandfather, Brooks Bradbury, Copyright 1982, Southbury, Connecticut)
