RETURN - By Cecelia Gustin, Ashland, Oregon

I saw the light come on in your small house,
And suddenly all life began anew!
The glad rain danced against my windowpane-
The blinding fog of yesterday withdrew.
I brushed my hair and hung my coat to dry;
With inward joy I tidied up the room
I brought the worn books from their hiding-place, 
And trimmed the wick and snuffed out all the gloom.

And then I waited for your knock,
And gaze once more at your unshaded light
That sparkled every raindrop in between
And pushed aside the curtains of the night.
Oh, your return was one joy-filled event
To heal a heart that faltered when you went!
