BIG THANK YOU! This is much appreciated.
Great stuff, thanks a lot for the information. It'll be helpful for my essay.
THANK YOU FOR THIS INSPIRATIONAL POEM MR. PETERS, YOU HAVE A GREAT TALENT IN YOUR WORDS.Blueberries and Ribs for Linwood Powell, home from IraqEverything’s gone.I got a stomach full of ribs.Took some to my friend from North Dakota,the one who brags on his recipe, the one who’s seen war, too. He called and said,Your friend can cook.Kept a few for Dad. Amy had some.Everyone got a taste.And it was so good. The smoke and easy peel of the pig. When the last rib was clean, I collected everything in tin foil,set the bones in the can outside and thought of your family. Nothing’s gone.We ate the last of the blueberries on New Year’s Day,frozen from a summer U-Pick in Naches. It was word of mouth at Amy’s work. Someone said, Blueberries this weekend. That’s how people knew.Mennonite women, bonnets and skirts, directed cars to a parking lot in a field.Families came and went. Sun low in the sky.We were given buckets, led down a row and told, This is your spot.Ella ate as much as she picked. Whit rested in his car seat.We gathered gallons. Enough to make pancakes and pies and cobbler. Enough to have blueberries with ice cream at night and on cereal in the morning.We turned cream blue.They’ve kept me thinking about summer, about when things will warm back up. I’m not close to saying what it was like, Linwood.Or what it has to do with manhole covers you can’t drive over. Or the beret you brought home and threw away.But out in Naches, on the old highway just over the hill from home, there’s this abundance. This ease. We comb the bushes and berries spill from our hands by the hundreds.By: Dan Peterswww.danpeters.org
Cheers to a great Professor.This will help tremendously. Much Thanks!!
This was very helpful even though I am not writing about farmworker housing it gave me an idea of how they lived.
This will be very helpful for my 3rd essay. I find it ridiculous that people aren't willing to adapt to new situation even if it benefits people less fortunate than them.
Thank you for yor information.That will help me to get quotes from the book.
