The weather was just fabulous when I set out for my walk. I decided to make the four-mile trek down to the River today, and, when I arrived the water was sparkling as the sun glinted down on it. A few pleasure boats were bobbing along, and the seagulls made it their business to cluster around, seemingly daring one another to swoop down closer to those vessels as they glided by. It didn’t feel as chilly this morning; must’ve been my great clothes combo I was wearing because I was ready to shuck off my jacket as the sun climbed higher in the sky while I walked home. As I wended my way through Wyandotte past those stately homes on Emmons Boulevard, in my peripheral vision I saw a movement in a front garden bed. I swiveled my head to look and there was a rabbit sitting on his haunches, looking very tall and regal amongst the green plants. He seemed a tad scared but he didn’t move. I thought he looked just like the tall chocolate bunny that takes center stage in your Easter basket. All that was missing were the Cadbury Eggs and jelly beans … and perhaps a Peep or two. I mused about that little rascal the rest of the way home and bemoaned that it was not Easter time with the whole Summer stretched out before us. Somehow the Summer of 2014 was too fleeting and we’ve now got less than a week ‘til Fall officially arrives. So, I may wish as hard as I want, but I can’t bring the Summer back for us I’m sorry to say.
