Suddenly and gracefully

you seated yourself

barely an arm’s length

from me

at the entrance

to a woodland

familiar to both of us

on a night with neither

moon nor stars

when out of the darkness

a strand of tiny suns appeared

as if summoned

from a distant sky

each of them as fully entranced with your glow

as you were with theirs

signaling they and you

had met this way often

and would do so


"A beautiful collection!"

The Prairies Book Review

"There is a tenderness in Trovato's poetry that goes straight to the heart."
