Stefano’s Pick

By Will Schmit



The good fig provides pride, shade,

and fruit. The family bicycle glides


under the lowest branch. Whether

the day is done, or not yet begun


the tree houses the thrush. On

the corner lot a reminder, not


every paradise is a plot between

this earth and air. Hang a swing


to a grandchild’s song, carve a

heart in an old man’s bark.



 


Will Schmit is a working class folk poet from Northern California. Will’s most recent recording Fix My Car: A Spoken Word Mythology is available for streaming at Spotify and on iTunes.
