These two cousins have been spending lots of time together!
One moment they might be best buddies and the next moment they might be rolling around, tugging on one another like two little puppies . . . !
The night we walked down to the Harbor in an 80-degree balmy breeze and walked back up the hill again with the cold autumn wind chasing us home.
Because we know it won’t last much longer.
And because when the house is a mess, this is the best place to be together.
I go now
out into that morning
with my black dog
and green boots,
ready to get saturated
with September dew,
tears like jeweled spider webs.
This is where we go after a day of school.
Where the woods are still so green.
Where the light is still so September.
When I showed this photo to Ellen, she said, “It looks like an engagement photo! What would you say if I decided to marry Theo?”
