Songs by Kelly Shepherd

we'll light up songs
by the campfire
I'll throw you a poem
across the field
we'll wash stories
in the waterfall
then send our dreams
to the moon


sing me a song
with your quiet smile
with your rising side
with your crying eyes
sing me a song
don't tell me the words




Kelly Shepherd, British Columbia, Canada
