A Poem From Roger Pfingston

Roger Pfingston is a retired teacher of English and photography who lives in Bloomington with his wife Nancy, also a retired teacher. “Thirty Years” was written for his wife nearly twenty years ago.

Thirty Years

How I love you
    this evening,
the two of us
   drinking sun tea
under the moon,
   fireflies a floating
marquee flashing
   one show only
as the night-
   blooming cereus
opens for our
   private pleasure.
