Life (Man works) 
Man works
Man sit
Woman skirts
Woman sit

Together lay
Comes a day
Baby cries
Sunny skies

Man works
Woman skirts

This one was written upon the first visit to some friends' cabin and I originally wrote it on a cedar scrap from the kindling pile by the fire. It was to begin a routine of writing poems every time the Dr. & I went there. It is really a very beautiful and remote location on the Skykomish river.
