Poem for Tuesday, Viceroy's House, Brandywine Zoo


In The Summer
By Nizar Qabbani
Translated by B. Frangieh And C. Brown

In the summer
I stretch out on the shore
And think of you
Had I told the sea
What I felt for you,
It would have left its shores,
Its shells,
Its fish,
And followed me.

Oh shut up, not a single moment of that movie ever gets old. After Delta had to go home, I had dinner with my family and we all caught up on Will. Here are photos from the Brandywine Zoo which we visited with Delta in August three years ago, including their Aldabra tortoise Maximus:
