tour Reggie Rivers’ house in Denver!

[An aside:  Reggie Rivers is one of my favorite ex-Bronco players!  His parents were living in our Seguin neighborhood when we first moved here and it was obvious after meeting them, why Reggie is such a Man of Character.]

Reggie Rivers (born February 22, 1968 in Dayton, Ohio) is a professional broadcaster working in Denver, Colorado. From 1991 to 1996, Rivers was a professional American football player who played running back for the Denver Broncos.

Bring me sunset in a cup . . .

Bring me the sunset in a cup
by Emily Dickinson

Bring me the sunset in a cup,
Reckon the morning’s flagons up
And say how many Dew,
Tell me how far the morning leaps —
Tell me what time the weaver sleeps
Who spun the breadth of blue!

Write me how many notes there be
In the new Robin’s ecstasy
Among astonished boughs —
How many trips the Tortoise makes —
How many cups the Bee partakes,
The Debauchee of Dews!

Also, who laid the Rainbow’s piers,
Also, who leads the docile spheres
By withes of supple blue?
Whose fingers string the stalactite —
Who counts the wampum of the night
To see that none is due?

Who built this little Alban House
And shut the windows down so close
My spirit cannot see?
Who’ll let me out some gala day
With implements to fly away,
Passing Pomposity?
