Poem for Sunday and Seattle Aquarium

By Sally Van Doren

I remember the hour
you stole time from me

and here in these late pages

After watching the Terps handily beat Purdue, we half-watched most of the Clemson game while doing various other things, then the season premiere of SNL. From the Seattle Aquarium:
