Thursday, April 18

But on you will go / though the weather be foul / On you will go / though your enemies prowl / On you will go / though the Hakken-Kracks howl / Onward up many / a frightening creek, / Though your arms may get sore / and your sneakers may leak. / On and on you will hike / and I know you'll hike far / and face up to your problems / whatever they are.

Benny and Zeke time!

Benny and I read Dr. Seuss' "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" (his favorite part? "No, that's not for you! / Some how you'll escape all that waiting and staying / and find the places where Boom Bands are playing!" Memorized. Boo-yah!).

Zeke and I read from a book of children's poetry and listened to a recording of Yeat's "The Stolen Child" ("For the world's filled with weeping, more than you can understand.")

Good times!

Benny is pictured looking at Dr. Seuss' "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" book. The page is open to the section quoted above ("But on you will go" etc.).
Zeke is pictured laying down and looking fairly content, watching a YouTube video of William Butler Yeats' "The Stolen Child" on my Kindle. To the right his teddy bear is propped up next to the Kindle.
