Memory of Howard C. Bozeman
December 11, 1933 - May 30, 2007
Play the heart of it.
Play joy, sorrow, longing, and mystery.
Play impish, snappish, mischievous, prankish.
Play hope, dread, confusion, and consternation.
Play rage, regret, worry, and wonder.
Play the sunrise, the moonrise,
and the first cup of coffee in the morning.
Play the babe’s first step, the bridal dance,
and the last step to the grave.
Play the seaside, the canyon,
the rapids, and the falls.
Play the thunderstorm, the mist,
the first sunny day of spring,
the gentle breeze of the last leaf falling,
the snowflake caressing the window pane.
