#70 Aubade for Ute Park by Lee Eric Freedman

Shafts of gold
the rhythm of the river
its gentle rain
brushes past my lips

Pierce the trees

i hear its voice
in everything
at first break of light

And burn the morning mists of dawn

The Renegade Poet Laureate of Swampscott, Massachusetts, in 2002, Lee Eric Freedman recited his poetry while standing on the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge.  Lee’s poems have appeared in Soundings East, This Magazine, Bray Arts Journal (Ireland), Zingology.com and YouTube.
