Based on a diving session off of a huge rock in Yosemite, this poem was published in the Valentine’s Day issue of Cricket Magazine, February 2008

by April Halprin Wayland

Last summer when we were at the creek
and you and Andy and Joey
climbed up to the highest rock

thought about it
saw how deep it was
thought about how cold it would be

and finally
one by one

when you didn’t tease me
or try to coax me up the rock
or call me a baby

Last summer is why
I’m giving you
this Valentine.
