Time Enough by Rick Magrath and Andrea Gallie For the Class of 2019 Summer's hope is in the wind Bags and dreams by the door. I'll be gone before the evening Before I'm settling for... If sunbirds greet my morning And cloud drops fill my day. Blacktop horizons echo songs So hard to go and stay. I've got time enough for flying Time enough to walk out of town I've got time enough for fences Time enough to touch distance shores I've got time enough for wasting Time enough for reaching crowns But right now I've got time enough Time enough for you and me Stars flicker in the rain Train whistles in the night Fields of trees - seas of grass Promises in hindsight Highway stretches deep River leaves begin to blow I'm scrambling to find my way Westward with the sun and crows So when I follow where I'm going And cobwebs lace my shoes I'll look inside and see your smile Find my way back to you
