In the wood just down canyon road by david Howerton

Finding a near quiet place 

is mostly a case of luck, 

and when you’ve found it 

bring a book 

to fill an afternoon. 

Drunk finches will doze 

away the long afternoon 

and squirrels want their share too. 

A wind picks up 

making you hold each page 

being read. 

All before the rush home 

from work ends 

any quiet briefly gained.
