New Market Muse

June 14, 2011
Tom Baideme
Near end of May and still threatens rain

As the marketers are here again

Settings stalls up in the park

To vend their wares again this year

Familiar faces along the walk

Both of venders and patrons today as well

To greet and be greeted anew in conversation

Of how each other has survived the winter

Browse to see the handiwork

That they’ve crafted through winter cold

Again to display their art to all

And hopefully to get them sold

Starter plants to those who wish to grow

Others’ clothes or books to read

Hanging jewelry for neck or ear

Or some refreshment for those in need

But now just past the final hour

With every one in tear-down mode

Packing all their wares away

Await to come another day

With folding tables, tent and dollies

To be collapsed and put inside

To wait again to be produced

And repeat this Saturday show renewed

Tom Baideme,

May 2011
