By the Pond


waterfall murmurs
a poem of golden light,
celebrating labor

Notes: Happy Labor Day for those of us in the USA, celebrating workers whose collective determination brought about the end of child labor and workdays exceeding twelve hours. My kids start school tomorrow, always a bittersweet day. Their labor is just beginning, but at least they are not in factories trying to earn enough to eat. When demonizing regulations, remember that five-year-olds used to work in fields and factories for pennies before regulations forbid it.
