4. Jimmy

by Peter Humphreys

Jimmy's
coming home
they say
upon the
post boat
any day
his letters
full
of wonderous news
of
buildings huge
and
jobs to spare
but
in the lean
mean
mountain air
I wonder
I
just
wonder

Peter, the uncertain tone in your lines add just the right touch of mystery. Hope and despair are blended here. I also sense a reluctance to leave the known for the unknown.
