Newspaper-boy's special report

all year long six days a week
delivering his morningpapers
printed in big bold black
06.30 he always causes a creak

before dawn starting  his triple-round
when closing soft but firm the rickety fence
today bringing along so much more
being the messenger of such a different sound

during this daybreak-bike-ride
he noticed he'd never seen before
the presence of a surprising muse
while the moon was shining incredibly bright light 

in the dark moonlight's clearest arrow
on the streets his own moving shadow

A tribute to all newspaper deliverers and one  in particular

    Great work honoring the newspaper boy..I don't know if they exist today at least here the papers come by the US Postal Service..Thanks for the visit to my page..A Peace Lily is the same as an Angel Lily don't know the real name for that plant..It grows in water or soil..It is the plant that they place in the jar with a male Beta..It blooms in the spring and the fall..Sara

    Hi Sara. In the Netherlands we enjoy the special service of delivery of a newspaper (subscription necessary of course)- separated from the mail - in the morning or evening (depending the moment the paper is printed.. ) by newspaper-boys/girls/men/women. Not a full time job.. but very beneficial for high school students + 15 of age and -or college students.
