Friday Poem

Greetings from St. Paul on this 20th week of the year, its 135th day--230 to go, the 20th Friday of the year,  with 36 days to go before SS on June 20.Today sunrise is at 5:43 am and sunset at 8:35 pm giving us 14h 52m 41s of daylength.

Yesterday, The Writer's Almanac observed the late Hal Borland's birthday. He was a journalist who had a remarkable run as the NYT's nature writer--1750 columns. Pinned to the wall of his office was a New Yorker cartoon with the caption: "Here's another of those crackpot editorials about the voice's of frgos shattering the autumn stillness."

Today's fondly remembered poem is by Martha Zwieg.
