Two Poems: By the Poolside and The Shepherd’s Muse

1. By the Poolside
By the pool that stills my soul
I watch the slow tide drift by
My song goes high pitch
When a catfish disturb my tranquility

2. The Shepherd’s Muse
Glad that the night brought pleasant airs
The shepherd lay to recall the day’s stress
Crickets chirp, the night is very young
But dreams come fast to the weary normad
