Boys on the Lawn
written during a neighborhood 'rumble'
Jun 15, 1997
Boys playing in the twilight on green spring lawns. The magnolia bloomed today, the daffodils burst skyward. The boys are redfaced and bright, the spring air fills their lungs as they huff and puff, Reluctant for supper and bedtime. Eagerly they throw themselves into wild tumbling and races. They come to the door for water, and then launch themselves back into the fray. When it's too dark to see my boys scuffle through the door into my arms. Their hair smelling like grass, mud, and evening air. Cool and sweaty, their hair in a tangle, their jeans stained with grass and mud, they exude the tonic of children. The bubble bath is frothy. They scorn it at first, and then with rubber sharks, dive in and attack.
Kimmy Sophia Brown has loved humor and music and freedom for as long as she can remember.She is especially passionate about the environment and caring for animals.
