"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Driving the Girls Home

They’ve gathered in the back of the van,
my daughter and her friends,
and until the ride ends
they talk as loud and as much as they can
telling stories, making each other laugh.
I drive. I listen. They hardly know
I’m there. So I drive slow
And enjoy feeling young on their behalf.

~ Tamary Shoemaker
