      A Selection from The Heron’s Nest Poems of Peggy Willis Lyles

 

September '09 Williams Memorial

Walden absorbs
a fallen oak —
the cold, damp hush

December '08 Higginson Memorial

blue dragonfly
pine needles cover
the narrow path

December '06 Porad Memorial

quick brushstrokes
while the light holds —
crickets

March '05 Lamb Memorial

a ripple
reaches the pond's edge —
daffodils

December '05 Kilbride Memorial

turning tide
the river goes
from gray to blue

September '03 Kylan-Jones Memorial

dark afternoon
hydrangeas drying
upside down

February '02

birdsong
through open windows —
he lifts the veil

March '02

mother's scarf
slides from my shoulder . . .
wild violets

October '01

lingering heat
the third-grade classroom
one desk short

December '01

Indian summer
a turtle on a turtle
on a rock
