Things that needed saying

Our daughter is in Oklahoma this week, helping to lead a conference.  She will return and go back to being a camp counselor on Sunday.  More practice in leaving and returning and leaving again.  In September we will drive her to Colorado to begin her freshman year at University of Denver.  I am grateful all three of us visited there before she made her choice.

We knew
When the tour guide
Kindly yet firmly corrected
The young man
Who mispronounced her name;
We knew
When the honors student offered
This college was not her first choice,
But she still loved it here;
We knew
When the mountains rose
In the distance
These were all  things
That needed saying,
And our daughter
Would have another home
