Wandering Ohio’s woodlands

All alone and unafraid.

Getting my first check for working,

Such a “grown-up” way to get paid.


Staring at the dorm-room ceiling

City-lit — where I was used to dark.

Seeing Cincy from the Tower,

Playing tennis in the park.


Eating cookies, drinking hot drink,

After door bells, looking for a “winner.”

Smelling turkey strong in Tuesday’s air;

Preparing for Hilltop’s big day dinner.
