Music Monday – R.E.M.

At the summer camp where you volunteered
No one saw your face,
No one saw your fear
If that apparition had just appeared
Took you up and away
From this base and sheer
Of your teenage station.

  1. Matt–Great site! I’ve bookmarked it and will be talking it up at the ACA National Conference this week–plus I am a HUGE R.E.M. fan so this was a tremendous way to start my week. Thanks! Ariella @sanborncamps (on Twitter)
