Graves - and a Sam Adams Beer tribute haiku
Went up to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery where we saw the Author's Ridge. Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, Thoreau, Bronson Alcott, and Emerson are all buried there. People have put pine cones or stones on many of their graves/headstones. I wonder how far back that tradition goes?
Quite an experience.
We then went into the city, where I saw Fenway Park - some day I will get to a game there - and went on the Sam Adams Brewery Tour. The tour guide was very funny - he did a great job.
At the end of the tour, they had a comment sheet. The guide said we could put whatever we want - even limericks or haiku. Aha! I wrote:
Monday afternoon -
after sampling your fine beer
Boston looks better.
Pax et bonum
