And dealing with 2 ear infections. And pink eye. The pink eye's all gone now but the ear infections remain... blargh.
School starts for the kids at work on Monday. And even though I just finished class and am experiencing a wee bit of vacation, I still have that back to school excitement. I'm looking forward to fall and sweaters. I love school supply shopping, even though I don't have to do it right now, I still find myself wandering the aisles of staples and smelling the erasers. I love the smell of a freshly sharpened pencil. I love the feel of a clean notebook, the roll of a good pen. The earnest eagerness of reinventing yourself every fall...
So, even though it's still summer, school is starting, which means it will soon be fall, so here's a fall poem by Emily Dickinson, always a favorite:
|THE MORNS are meeker than they were,|
|The nuts are getting brown;|
|The berry’s cheek is plumper,|
|The rose is out of town.|
|The maple wears a gayer scarf,||5|
|The field a scarlet gown.|
|Lest I should be old-fashioned,|
|I ’ll put a trinket on.|
