A poem for mom

Dear Editor:

Although Thanksgiving may have passed, it doesn’t mean we still shouldn’t give thanks. The one person I owe the most thanks to is my mom. She has always been there for me and yet she was always short of a thank you from me. Mom, I love you so much and I always will. Here is a poem to let you understand how thankful I am of you:

To a parent I owe many thanks

For because you,

You opened up stream of riverbanks

Each different in its own way like a door

And every different door

Through if I walk I can explore even more

You gave me wings so I could fly

You gave me tears so I could cry

Now I realize what you do

And how I am so special to you

Now hear me roar

I couldn’t love you anymore

Than a dinosaur

And silly as that may seem

Thank you for opening up my

Life’s little stream

Because of you I

Will always follow

My little streams

I can’t love you more than I already do

So here is my BIG thanks to you

Mom I know you are special in every single way

but think of this little thought

I have shared with you today


All the stars you see at night

Are there to help you make me

smile super bright

Rebecca Robinson

Aspen rugby returns home after long absence, routs Vail on Wagner


Playing at home for the first time in nearly two years, the Gentlemen of Aspen Rugby Club overcame an apparent lack of size compared to the Vail side en route to a 49-14 win on Saturday at Wagner Park in downtown Aspen. Prior to hosting Vail, the Gents hadn’t played at home since Ruggerfest in the fall of 2019.
