Spring Pools

In the spring there is sometimes a small pool that develops under the Oak. Manolo tries to drain it every year with a sump pump and garden hose. That alone is a beautiful scene but one only a big fan of Fellini will read properly. Anyway, when the pool shows up I always think of Robert Frost's poem about them. I usually give a reading before the pool on the equinox and invite anyone who happens to be around the house. This year I recited it only to myself, but I think I did a good job. When I got to the part about "let them think twice before they use their powers" I was really thinking about the homeowners association. The electrician is testing the smoke alarms so I have to leave for a minute. Well, everyone got out of the house and met at the front gate just as Manolo's plan dictated. He has a flashlight, an orange vest and checklist and he will most certainly be checking it twice. Single file Diary.
