    • The Best Time Of The Dayby Raymond CarverCool summer nights.Windows open.Lamps burning.Fruit in the bowl.And your head on my shoulder.These the happiest moments in the day.Next to the early morning hours,of course. And the timejust before lunch.And the afternoon, andearly evening hours.But I do lovethese summer nights.Even more, I think,than those other times.The work finished for the day.And no one who can reach us now.Or ever.
