25 September

Hannah and I met in the faerie wood

we picnicked on white wicker chairs

fresh bread and tart cherry jelly

with raspberry tea in jars

and molasses cookies

and just each other for company

which sets a mother's heart a twirling

when her daughter is 27

and just the two of you are chasing frogs 

and befriending pine trees

in a faerie wood

of an autumn afternoon

There's no place like New England in the autumn

and this was only the very first day

along the riverbanks

are olden pines

who whisper strength and steady friendship

when you stop to listen


Where the frogs are

You set my life a whirling

darling when you're twirling

on the floor

and who cares about tomorrow

what more is tomorrow

than another day

when you swept me away

yeah you swept me away
