Wooden Bench


A bench by the sea.
Empty now.
Waiting for 
the pensive dreamer
to pause to contemplate
the changing light
over the water.
For the active child
to climb on its seat
and leap to the ground
with a crow of delight.
For the lovers
to sit close
for a moment.
Just two
in a tourist throng. 


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
