DPF / Levine

For childhood and its many varieties, some endless ones and some too brief, from What Work Is.

from Growth / by Philip Levine

Then out to the open weedy yard
among the waiting and emptied drums
where I hammered and sawed, singing
my new life of working and earning,
outside in the fresh air of Detroit
in 1942, a year of growth.
