Summery ...



“The summer night is like a perfection of thought.”
               ~ Wallace Stevens
                    ~ 1879-1955
     ~ American modernist poet born
               in Reading, Pennsylvania
   ~ Pulitzer Prize Winner for Poetry for his “Collected Poems” in 1955

The warm air melds with the chirping of birds and crickets, the only sounds in the still beauty of a July evening at Schlicher Covered Bridge in summer, my most favorite of seasons.

Schlicher Covered Bridge is an historic wooden covered bridge located in North Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. It is a 108-foot-long, Burr Truss bridge that crosses the Jordan Creek and was constructed in 1882. It has vertical plank siding and a gable roof. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. It underwent needed renovations a few years ago.

It can be accessed from the Covered Bridge Trail at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Bright-Eyed And Bushy-Tailed ...


“All good things are wild and free.”
           ~ Henry David Thoreau
              ~ 1817-1862
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, this sweet white-tailed deer fawn is quite alert as she grazes on a gorgeous July evening in the park with her mama doe closeby.
