advisability of planting potatoes in
their front yards. One prominent

make a picture about telling us that because

of robin's egg-blue, before the buds have swelled,

does not make a summer." But one bathing girl does
She and the wild geese, and the mother of all
the winds and Time's great grandmother, they know
her Vhen Summer uncurls in her tree-root nest and
opens her forget-me-not eyes for good. The first
bathing girl on the coasts is as stir-.- sign of sum-
mer as the first barefoot boy in the inland plains.
Summer and the small boy never step out on the
highway barefoot until the soft sand that squidges
up between their rosy toes is warm.
And the bathing girl never breaks the emerald
surface of the sea until the air is Summer's own
breath. So when you see her the1 first girl in black
satin and mermaidy hair, where the sea comes in
and whispers to the sand of coral necklaces and am
ber root then may you know, hopeful young sir,
that Summer is here for good. ,
