Crossing Ohio When Poppies
Bloom in Ashtabula 

                                - by Carl Sandburg

Go away. Leave the high winds of May
blowing over the fields of grape vines
near the northwest corner of Pennsylvania.
Leave the doorstep peonies
pushing high bosoms at passers- by
in northern Ohio towns in May.

Leave the boys flying light blue kites
on a deep blue sky; and the yellow, the
yellow spilling over the drinking rims
of the buttercups, piling their yellows
into foam blown sea rims of yellow;
Go away; go to New York,
Broadway, Fifth Avenue, glass
lights and leaves, glass faces,
fingers;  go

Pick me poppies in Ohio,  mother.
Pick me poppies in the back yard
in Ashtabula.
May going, poppies coming, summer humming:
make it a poppy summer, mother; the leaves sing in the silk, the leaves sing a tawny red gold; seven sunsets saved themselves
to be here now.

Pick me poppies, mother; go, May; wash me, summer; shoot up this back yard in Ashtabula, shoot it up, give us a daylight fireworks in Ohio, burn it up with tawny red

[ poem provided by Lois Linderman Vaughn ]

Here is a great song written and sung by Canadian/Scottish musician David Francey about the Ashtabula Harbor.

Welcome 'Bula '69ers!

Interested in helping with future REUNIONs?  Let us know.  Get in touch.  It won't happen unless we all work together.  There is not really a standing Reunion Committee... it's just us, folks!  You and me and the next member of our class ....

We hope you will enjoy these pages produced by your classmates from Ashtabula High School.  This is the official site of the Class of 1969 Reunion Committee and your best source of information for reunion plans and information.

Read through these pages and rekindle old acquaintances.   Read News and Events. Remember a birthday.   NOTE: Due to costs and time considerations, most communications with class members will be through email rather than postal service.

Update your email by sending a note with your email address to Mary.

Do you have something to contribute to these pages?  Ideas?  Suggestions?   Get in touch.   Help  is needed with locating missing classmates , collecting email addresses, and we may need to do some fund raising in order to maintain this web site.

Send this web address to any AHS '69ers you are in touch with.      

Go Bula! panther

These pages are a joint effort by the following classmates: Jerry Maunus got us started. Jerry was the sole funder for server space for this web site from 2008 to 2012.   Mary Ellsworth created the current design of these pages and maintains them.  Robert Rinto sent funds to cover the cost of this website for 2015. Carol Dewey and Linette Chaney helped in 2018.

Contributions will always be welcomed. Contact  Mary.
