Walden Ponders

I WAS THERE….FOR A SUMMER JOB INTERVIEW….AND AMAZED AT HOW CLOSE THE RAILROAD EMBANKMENT WAS!

Friendly Fairy Tales

We can never have enough of nature.

— Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Walden Pond

Turquoise-tailed baby bluegills tickle our toes.
The scent of pine and wildflowers wafts to my nose.
Purple loosestrife and asters dot the green wayside.
Children splash, fishermen cast, not even fish can hide.
Green-dappled water buoys and refreshes tired mums,
Dragonflies eat mosquitoes, and ants carry off crumbs.
Thoreau wrote of being alone, but that was far in the past,
Instead lots of people hike, fish, swim, play and eat a repast.

Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.

Note: We visited Walden Pond today, and had a great time! I hope you had a great day, too. 🙂
