Two Poems by William Davies, Jr.

The House of Erly

The shadow of a leaf
dances across the sunny bark,
a rollicking corps de ballet
whose director could not
have accounted for
such loyalty when
the principle had been
so easily seduced by autumn.


The tomatoes, crestfallen
along the sill.
Sallow, green Tetrarchs
ousted, in the all
but conquered garden.

William Davies, Jr. lives in a town surrounded by dairy farms.  He has been happily married for thirty-eight years.  His work has appeared in the Cortland Review, Bluepepper, The Wilderness House Review, Gloom Cupboard and many others.
