oh, i remember now.
“in november you begin to know how long winter can be.”
in a snow bowl game
with rivalry roots from way back when
that hadn’t been won
the university of michigan over the ohio state university
in so many years
at last the wolverines bring a victory home
and with the win

spilling out onto the field
and into the very, very happy town of ann arbor.
“you don’t have a real rivalry unless both sides are great teams.”

finding a mushroom village – autumn in sugarbush park
“mushrooms were the roses in the garden of that unseen world,
because the real mushroom plant was underground.
the parts you could see – what most people called a mushroom –
was just a brief apparition. a cloud flower.”
