Woven on the wind
where yesterday lives -
and mockingbird song
was a reason for hope.
Oh, for sweet liberation!
Now the drum of war,
a dangerous beauty -
the age of innocence
never no more.

This is written for the challenge over at dVerse Poets Pub - Form For All - The Hidden Poetry Books. A found poem using book titles. These are a few of the many I just went through (and messed up my neat bookshelves!) It really was much harder than I thought, and I did add a few words - they are italicized.
Most of my books I get from my favorite used book store - I love roaming about picking up a book here and there for a few dollars - I never fail to walk out with an armful.
