Dear Ones,

Here is one of my early poems …

THE TIME WILL COME
a poem by Alice B. Clagett
amongst her early works

The time will come  – –
The last wild place
will be the freeway’s
edge

wild creatures’ ears accustomed to the noise

noses tuned by slow cull to tell
exhaust from predator’s
faint scent

. . . . .
