On May 5th, Denver's 5-year old daughter, Maybelle, said,
"it's always a little chilly when I walk to school in the morning, because the weather is just getting used to being the weather again."
And he wrote a drowning ghazal for her . . . .
the weather is getting used to being the weather again
the birds are getting used to their wings and feathers again
your coat is on the door knob your bag is in the hall
the shoes just remembered that they’re leather again
see the sun didn’t drown it’s back for another day
we said goodnight just as the moon was un-tethered again
I make you breakfast and kiss you into day
now that the dawn and we are brethren again
after this dream and that after these dreams and those
Maybelle, I’m just getting used to being Denver again
