WINDOW SERVICE, ROCK SERVICE, CABIN SERVICE, AND PORCH SERVICE

At torpet, just after completing a poem for them, 
Ingrid and Anna's voices sang Swedish folk songs
Into the rear window, offering a tray of frukost fare.

During a boat trip on Lake Vänern, after a refreshing 
Swim, we bask on huge boulders in the  late afternoon sun.
Eva offers tea and coffee. Where? Rock service, please.

As I exited the little stugan where I sleep, I found
Eva and Staffan at the small, umbrella-shaded table,
Quietly eating breakfast and motioning me to join in.

Evening meals on the front porch with a variety of
Relatives, a different composition gathers every night.
Wonderful, delicious food trolskt/magically appears.
