i don't think i ever told you this ... but i loved your laugh! sweet dreams poppie duke. You will be missed.
"Leaves of Grass"
I depart as air. I shake my white locks at the runaway sun. I bequeath myself to the dirt, to grow from the grass I love.
If you want me again, look for me under your boot soles.You will hardly know who I am,or what I mean, but I shall be good health to you nevertheless. Missing me one place, search another.
I"ll stop somewhere, waiting for you.
