    Observing

    Observing
    With the assuredness of young limbs
    caressing the sky
    your arms move around the children
    you breathe as the children
    softly, in deep sleep
    giving light to shadows and breath 
    to shallow sounds
    it is not so much that I am awe 
    of your marvelous grace
    as much 
    as grateful
    With the assuredness of young limbs
    caressing the sky
    your arms move around the children
    you breathe as the children
    softly, in deep sleep
    giving light to shadows and breath 
    to shallow sounds
    it is not so much that I am awe 
    of your marvelous grace
    as grateful

    Beautiful sentimental write. I see it as your lover carefully caressing the children as they slumber? I marvel at how you can say so much in so few words, painting a masterpiece linguistically. Blessings, W.

    amazing the way you tell us of the love for a child . Great write loved it Marie

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
