looking into the recent past

 an adirondack foothill walk on sunday
 cold but beautiful
 lovers or a book
maybe both
 my sister and i remember this walk
which we've done many, many times
though not often together
water is high, but i've seen it higher
framing spring
over the fall line
big sound
crows and ravens talk high above
a little friend
out back
succulent new grass brings
out two
no, four yearlings.
