Poem for Thursday and Kenwood Cherry Blossoms

Song of Solomon 2:8-17
King James Version (KJV)

8 The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
9 My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice.
10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
13 The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
14 O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.
15 Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.
16 My beloved is mine, and I am his: he feedeth among the lilies.
17 Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved, and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.


I had a pretty fun Wednesday after a morning of chores. My friend Mel invited me to an EX raid, so I went with a big crowd to the Shriver Aquatic Center for that, then met a couple of other people at Congressional Fountain for a Giratina raid after a stop at Bagel City for lunch. From there I stopped at Five Below, which I had heard had tiny little shelves (in white and black), and wound up at Cabin John Park, where I walked around by the blooming trees and watched a bit of the Georgetown-GMU baseball game at Povich Field.

We had hikers' curry-in-a-bag for dinner to see if we want to take it traveling since it's just-add-boiling-water, so easy vegetarian lentils and potatoes. Then we watched Wimbledon since I got a Vudu copy cheap since I own the DVD, waiting for the reruns of the first two episodes of What We Do in the Shadows since we missed it when it first aired. (Pretty good, better women's roles, but I miss Taika onscreen.) From Kenwood in Bethesda last weekend, some of the many cherry blossom trees with backdrop of million dollar houses:
