We ran to the river
flooded after the rain
full, swift, and dangerous.
We were young,gallant, naughty ,
and extravagant with laughter.
We knew when not to dare.
note:While browsing National Geographic online I came across an offer of a new book,
Life from Scratch, by Sasha Martin, to be released on March 3rd. Her story reminded me of my childhood.I requested Mrs. Abstract to order the book for me. The author has a youtube video to introducing the book.
