After “Tomorrow Morning,” Edward Wadsworth, 1929-44


The blue sky hangs over the wooden



While the waves roll toward it in

from of the lighthouse


A sailboat moves across the bay as

twilight approaches


You can see the first star of night

shining in the distance


A lonely fishing lure lays on the dock

abandoned by the fisherman from earlier



The jetty feels lonely now that the

day is done


But there is also the excitement of

another day to come


and the new adventures that lie



The tides of people come with the



It’s lonely through the night of winter


And busy and exciting during the

days of summer


People come and go and grow and

move on


Some will be back next year while

some will move on with their lives


We won’t know who is which

until the next season of our lives begins
