September 10th 2001: the perfect summer day

At least for now there is no plow that’s tearing up the land:

The fruits of Earth complete their birth, received from God’s own hand.

(Excerpt from the Prologue of the 9/11 Epic Poem)

This stanza continues the theme of the perfect summer day as representative of the blissful ignorance that preceded 9/11. This mental image is one of the complete fullness of life, a time to rest in the fruits of one’s labors, attempting to forget that in just a few weeks all the fields will have to be plowed under for the winter cycle. Due credit for what has been recieved is given to God, because, as an author, it would be wrong for me to even pretend to ignore God’s responsibility for everything good that happens to us humans.
