It all became clear

It all became clear
as I read Donald Lev.
All the humor
from this lifeboat
was missing. Even the oars
but that didn’t matter:
Life follows
its own course.
So spare me the rowing
and pass me a beer.
It’s time to celebrate
we’re all still afloat!

Do you know what that means?
Do you know what that means?
A few more moments
of blue sky and honey crisp apples.
More Catskill Mountain breezes
and summer skirts falling.
More clear sailing
and muddied boots.
More coffee and wine
and the love that you choose.
