All of these photos were taken on Friday, June 29th shortly after a thunderstorm rolled through town. I wrote about my walk in a previous post which you can read here: A Walk in the Park After the Storm. Today, just enjoy the photos and the poem! (All of today’s photos were taken with the Nikon Coolpix S4000)
A Walk In the Park in Summer
Down along the Shawsheen I walk
A summer’s day drenched in spangles
Of sunlight and shadows
Dancing on the woodland path,
Or playing on the lawn.
Birds sing, robins hop,
Orange breasts flashing like bright apples on the ground,
Song sparrow sings,
A small bunny nibbles on clover.
The river slides by golden brown
Silt particles floating and flashing in the current,
While grackles call and cackle from the shore
And on the dead snag in the river an eastern kingbird flies out,
Hits the water, and returns to its perch again.
