Song for a Summer Day
by Alice B. Clagett
I went for a drive from Los Angeles to Grass Valley in the spring of 2001,
and on the way home, this poem was born. It's about true love ...
not the kind we read about in novels, but the love from which we sprang,
and to which each of us longs to return.
Here is the spoken poem (1) : https://youtu.be/w6kDvNIGzvo

These sun-drenched California hills
Not a bad way to go....
I’d like to live on a road
Let it have rolling hills
Let it have bird call
Love does not forget the other,
Love is, and what is not
The length and breadth and depth of life
-- a gift of love, May 2001
