Heisler Park in Spring

Out of a yellow
school bus burst several dozen
second-graders. They
scatter and shout with delight,
glimpsing Divers Cove.
Single file, class, no running—
the teacher’s voice is
lost on the spring wind. A lawn
bowler adjusts his
hat, cups the ball in his hands;
then, genuflecting, rolls it.


  1. I am going to use "genuflecting" at least once today, however not whilst lawn bowling.

  2. We look forward to retirement and spending our days lawn bowling...and yelling at "those damn kids" on our lawn.

  3. I'm pretty sure it means something nasty
