A Mother's Love
It was the Great Biologist who said,
"You know that is absurd.
There's no such animal as this,
No Goblin Gloaming Bird!"...
...And so I had to take his hand
And lead him to the stair
That led back to the World of Facts,
And sadly leave him there.
In Flagrante Dilecto
The common cormorant or shag
Lays eggs inside a paper bag
The reason you will see no doubt
It is to keep the lightning out
But what these unobservant birds
Have never noticed is that herds
Of wandering bears may come with buns
And steal the bags to hold the crumbs.
(Yes, that Christopher Isherwood.

I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas
Words & Music by: John Rox
Performed by: Gayla Peevey (in 1953, age 11)
This song has been covered many times, from Shirley Temple to Leanne Rimes, but no one has ever surpassed the little girl with the great big voice who performed it first. I thank you, Gayla and John, (and so do my children and grandchildren) for generations of joy you have given us.
Daybreak at Uncle Walter's House
Lyrics: Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss)
Music & Performance: Seamus Kennedy
Walking the Dog on the First Day of Spring
Since Spring began, New England has been trappped in a stalled weather pattern that has brought us a major snowstorm every four or five days. The crocuses and daffodils are as confused as we are.
At least, let's hope so.
Oliver. May he rest in peace.
The End of Summer
Even when it is cloudy and cool, when it is the iast day of summer and the sun is still up, it is hard to come in off the beach
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die.
supreme blessedness; exalted happiness.
"Beatitude is a possession of all things held to be good, from which nothing is absent that a good desire may want.
Perhaps the meaning of beatitude may become clearer to us if it is compared with its opposite. Now the opposite of beatitude is misery.
Misery means being afflicted unwillingly with painful sufferings."
--St. Gregory of Nyssa
If Maxfield Parrish Went to Sarah's Wedding...
My little girl was married yesterday in Pennsylvania. The groom is a marvellous man whom I both respect and love. I had to stay home on Cape Cod because of a family illness.
My little girl is a lovely woman of considerable grace and accomplishment. Her husband is a handsome man of principle, strength and sensitivity. Their family deserves the best of the best. Always.
While I am filled with magical happiness for them, it made me very sad and lonely, too.
Do you hear the cry as the pack goes by,
The wind-wolves hunting across the sky?
Hear them tongue it, keen and clear,
Hot on the flanks of the flying deer!
Across the forest, mere, and plain,
Their hunting howl goes up again!
All night they’ll follow the ghostly trail,
All night we’ll hear their phantom wail,
For tonight the wind-wolf pack holds sway
From Pegasus Square to the Milky Way,
And the frightened bands of cloud-deer flee
In scattered groups of two and three.
--William D, Sargent, Wind-Wolves
There's a Monster under my Bed, Daddy!
Really there is!
