Walk with Me

I travel the paths I know so well

Through bee-loved fields and over dark hill

And as I see memories from long before

I feel you walk with me once more


I hear your words and remember those days

In years past, when you cheered and waved

Each step that I take your voice I miss more,

That honour goes to six-year-old Henri Singleman of the East, according to the authority of said six-year-old, who upon the occasion of his appearing in photos TWICE in the pages of this publication, exclaimed, “I won Pennsic!”
