South Georgia heat and mug
fighting through sand spurs to get in the canoe
the cool, restful, shade-dark house
dear Mr. Schomburg and his beloved canvas canoe
swift water currents, hard work going upstream
drifting down stream to the sounds of Chopin etudes on the hi-fi
avoiding the overgrown edges where water moccasins hid
banks of maidenhair fern, sometimes dripping with tiny waterfalls
arguing with Ginny about who paddled harder
gaining a life long skill and joy
