“The poets are right: love is eternal.”

Here’s to love, lasting and true–
Happy Valentine’s Day, from us to you!!

An 8tracks playlist to get you in the mood, and a beautifully romantic poem from Chris Ransick. Enjoy, all you lovers, and don’t forget to kiss your sweetie.

Picking Apples in the Dark
by Chris Ransick from Language for the Living and the Dead

Language breaks when I try to name
how your hand moves among shadows,
among moonwaxed leaves.

Pale globes wobble as the ladder
bends a glossy branch and you lean
into wind in your fiftieth autumn,

a land we no longer deny. I would
pick apples with you on our last day
and be filled up and be satisfied.
