Good Morning!!

It is another beautiful day, and yesterday I realized that Memorial Day is approaching and summer is almost here.  Oh, My!

I like this poem by W.S. Merwin about Blueberries After Dark.   It is the time for summer fruits, longer days, and if you live where I live, deep, strong nights.   May your days balance easily the light and the dark.  


So this is the way the night tastes
one at a time
not early or late

my mother told me
that I was not afraid of the dark
and when I looked it was true

how did she know
so long ago

with her father dead
almost before she could remember
and her mother following him
not long after
and then her grandmother
who had brought her up
and a little later
her only brother
and then her firstborn
gone as soon
as he was born

she knew

- W. S. Merwin
