my life on the farm

has reduced to this (and everything else I'm not telling):

- every day twice I ride my bicycle up the steep driveway

- every day I memorize an Emily Dickinson poem

i'm on day four

Low to my problem bending,
Another problem comes --
Larger than mine -- serener --
Involving statelier sums.

I check my busy pencil,
my figures file away.
Wherefore, my baffled fingers
Thy perplexity?

how many days will I do this?
