I can see,
birds sitting in a tree,
by the sea,
and I can see,
seagulls flying with glee,
why do birds fly,
and what do they see,
lllllooookking at ...me!

Max was at a swim meet today. He was scared at first but he managed to overcome his fears and did pretty awesome : ) He swam a 50m event for the first time, a breaststroke event for which he never trained (he was signed up for it by mistake), and he improved his time in the freestyle event. He completed the freestyle swim in 29s but the lady that was measuring it was the destructed at the time and only pressed the timer late.
THE MORE LOVING ONE
by W.H. Auden
Looking up at the stars, I know quite well
That, for all they care, I can go to hell,
But on earth indifference is the least
We have to dread from man or beast.
How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.
Admirer as I think I am
Of stars that do not give a damn,
I cannot, now I see them, say
I missed one terribly all day.
Were all stars to disappear or die,
I should learn to look at an empty sky
And feel its total dark sublime,
Though this might take me a little time.
