Sitting in the church basement

Legs crossed

We sang along to Arlo Guthrie tunes

And held hands, mine clasped around yours

Bubbly, smart, valedictorian

People wanted to be near you

It was my good fortune

And I knew it


Connecticut College

Scented candle wax dripping

On the album sleeve

Listening to The Free Design

Muted coronets, close harmonies

Soft pops on the record playback

Stay Another Season…

How many winters ago

You’re long gone but

The wax is still there, many seasons later
