river sunlight
the smell of tugboats
and blossoms

    Longer days
    and April snow melting
    Spring in Wisconsin

    ellen, surely you've been reading my mind; though in my youth it was:
    spring in pennsylvania
    longer days
    with may snow melting
    -

    isn't it amazing, so different, every generation's seasons

    -

    what a mixture, martin; and yet, memoirs in the mind of the beholder...

    -

    cooler dawn
    sound of the mockingbird
    as autumn nears

    furnace running
    fragrance of the lily
    floats through the house
