Wait Watcher

Over time, what have you waited for?
Sunshine or rain?
A train, a plane?
The evening news?
The cat to come home?
Meaning?
Love?
A vacation?
A blue moon?
Spring flowers, autumn leaves?
A birthday celebration?
An anniversary?
A new year?
The clock to strike?
Tomorrow?

Mary Louise Cox, Poet Laureate of the Town and Village of Mamaroneck
