Copperhead Country

Copperhead Country

Walking on the path near

my house I saw

a canopied forest

neath azure skies and 

porcelin clouds

and touched my pearl earrings

the ones you gave me before we left Tennessee

as a copperhead slithered by


continuing on its way

unlike the other ones I will meet

on the bright gleaming campus

 its noble archway

bidding all who enter here --

"Arbeit Macht Frei"
