Next Saturday

Next Saturday

I could read the lyrics of Yeats
sing a Schubert song
listen to Mozart’s Magic Flute
view the Rembrandt exhibit

I could read treasured letters
collected over the years,
share a meal with cherished friends
visit a gorgeous rose garden

But if I owned the freedom to choose
my selection, based on love
would save the rest for another time
and leave Saturday for you
