92. Another thought about Heaven
© 17 January 2020 (but really 21 November 1972)

Here's a poem I wrote nearly 50 years ago!

If I had tears in Heaven I would cry.
The Tigris flows from one eye,
the Euphrates from the other;
such is the Garden of Eden.

You cannot hear the birds sing
nor see the trees.
Our eyes are salted out.
Our mouths bawl with joy.
