Elsewhere Mr. Moles inaugurates a meme: "Post the oldest piece of your writing you can find that isnít completely embarrassing."
Actually there's plenty of my writing from when I was a kid that I don't find embarassing; I rather like, for instance, the "poems" my parents transcribed for me when I was two and three years old. (One went like this: "Some are happy / Some are sad / Others take flight". The "take flight" thing is, I believe, the influence of de Brunhoff. I feel like that one works pretty well, yes?)
However I also happen to have unearthed on this here computer a poem I wrote the summer after high school; and it quotes a lovely friend of mine who just got married this past weekend to a lovely guy (in a very lovely wedding, in which Aviva was one of a vast river of white-clad day-lily-bedecked flower girls)... and the serendipity of that is irresistable.
The title may have been added somewhat later.
