A Happy Birthday by Ted Kooser

A Happy Birthday

This evening, I sat by an open window and read till the light was gone and the book ws no more than a part of the darkness. I could easily have switched on a lamp, but I wanted to ride this day down into night, to sit alone and smooth the unreadable page with the pale gray ghost of my hand.
