|Miss Suzanne--I loved her the moment I met her|
Suzanne showed up with lovely old book, and a pressed leaf from yesteryear that served as a bookmark. She read to us The Song of Wandering Aengus by William Butler Yeats, and told us how one of her children memorized it.
She told me about her art studies and professors and poetry. She told me about her homeschooling (unschooling) years--her kids now grown.
We walked around the yard afterward and talked about trees and sunlight and gardens and life--real life.
And it was so good.
