• Hold firm the wonder

  • Curiosity is a wonderful thing
    but not when it mutes the tale
    of the child.
    Children should see
    in the eye of the listener
    that their tale is wondrous
    Always look
    your child in the eye
    when they give you
    their song
    and encourage them to sing
    above the madding crowd
    Keep their gaze
    when Kings and Queens
    walk through the splendid door
    Or single chimes announce your worth
    in that ephemeral delight
    of literal sweet nothings
    Keep that gaze holy
    For that, right there,
    is where love resides.
