Arm's Length--By Lois Greene Stone--United States

Arm's Length

Singing, whisper quiet,
I serenaded passing
street lights. Our
auto's gentle rocking was
an accompanist.
Though my tune continued
when you suddenly swerved,
your arm automatically
reached out to
protect me.

Lois Greene Stone, writer and poet, has been syndicated worldwide. Poetry and personal essays have been included in hard & soft cover book anthologies. Collections of her personal items/ photos/ memorabilia are in major museums including twelve different divisions of The Smithsonian.
