New Hampshire Moments

Near wildflowers, lakes, bogs and country roads
in the yarn shop the ladies spin and share their lives

on a quiet road a sway back horse lives out his days

and long departed settlers rest with their memories
of days when they walked along these streams
looked up at these mountains

and left their legacy to the flinty people of New Hampshire

like my friend Brenda
who has climbed 48 peaks over 4,000 feet

and other flinty folk
who honored the fallen of 9/11
by raising the flag on every one of those 48 peaks

in memory

9/11 story
