Dedication of the Plaza - June 14, 2007

Connie Post, Livermore's Poet Laureate,
recites her poem Water Over Stone

Water Over Stone

Go to where the water runs
over the stone

where the diligent day
holds the hand of dusk
find a pathway
where the grass is soft
where the cool blades

A Sunday picnic
A summer moon
A languid night

go to where literature is carved
into the unconscious life
of a city

the words finding their way
to the back roads of thought

Each footprint finds its place
in the history of the town

each finds its way
beyond the beckoning lights

To a song
A dance
An opera never heard

go back to the time
when you could fold your legs under
feel the earth beneath you

imbibe the self you have forgotten
let it flow back to you
close you eyes.....

The words, the stones
The places inside the grass
They will find you

It was a 100 degree day, so the Brief was the order of the day for the speeches.


FiRE + iCE supplied refreshments.
Wine was provided by Retzlaff Winery and John Christopher Cellars
Both have tasting rooms at Blacksmith Square.

Looking across the newly dedicated plaza to the Performing Arts Theater.
The 500 seat theater is very nearly finished on the outside.
