A canvas and a poem

There is a heavy duty canvas boat cover, used on a 12' row boat, listed on Craigslist this morning for $20.00. The seller, from Gresham, says its torn but useful.

And here is a poem by Shel Silverstein

Forgotten Language

Once I spoke the language of the flowers,
Once I understood each word the caterpillar said,
Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings,
And shared a conversation with the housefly
in my bed.
Once I heard and answered all the questions
of the crickets,
And joined the crying of each falling dying
flake of snow,
Once I spoke the language of the flowers. . . .
How did it go?
How did it go?
