time of wonder

We’re soaking up the last days of summer and getting lost in Robert McCloskey’s poetic Time of Wonder today.  Hope everyone has had their share of wondrous moments this summer.

“Out on the islands that poke their rocky shores above the waters of Penobscot Bay, you can watch the time of the world go by, from minute to minute, hour to hour, from day to day, season to season.”

“You snap off the light and row toward the dock as the stars are gazing down, their reflections gazing up.  In the quiet of the night one hundred pairs of eyes are watching you, while one pair of eyes is watching over all.”
