Evening Score

May 29, 2008
By Erica Yurvati, Kutztown, PA

Walk to a jog and to a run
Towards the beacons blinding down
I see your outline up ahead
Shout your name into the northern wind
It carries the memories off

I was once behind
Off on my own but no independence
Then I took a careful step
And walked into your life
My candor you gave when I was
Learning to walk then to run

Past the steel stairs and over top
Of the lines drawn in the grass
The amber bulbs displaying this
Evening score

Up above the darkened limits
Its diamond shining down
Sights preserved with a click
I run with you against the wind
Clock freezes, time won’t wait up

And when I close my eyes I take flight
Past the steel stairs and over top
Of the lines drawn in the grass
The amber bulbs displaying this
Evening score
