    shades of view

    When I look at you , I see a handsome,successful guy.
      what do you see , when you look at yourself?
    When I hear you speak, I hear wisdom.
      What do you hear , when you speak?
    When you laugh, my hope increases.
       What happens to you when you laugh?
    When you scold me , I feel protected.
       what do you feel when you scold me?

    when I look at you , I see  culture .
     why do you think I see this?
    when I hear you speak, I want to teach.
      why do you think this happens?
    when you laugh, I feel closer to family.
      what brings this closeness?
    when you hold back tears, I see your tenderness.
      why does this make me want to be stronger.

    when you enlighten me , I am transformed into a queen.
        how do you have this power over me ?
    when you support me , I am powerful, I can do anything.
      what can you do with my support?
    when you prove that you care for me , my esteem intensifys .
      What does my care do for you ?

    when you treat me with respect, I need for no one else.
      How does my respect move you ?
    When you listen to me, I understand your concern for me.
      when I listen to you , what changes?
    when you get along with my family, My hurt ,shame, disappears.
       how are you inspired when I get along with your family?

    When I look at you , I see greatness.
     Do I look blessed in your eyes?
    when I feel your spirit, I know your a gift.
      What do you think of my spirit ?

    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.
