Aside

make a little birdie nest

Hey you, 

             make a little birdie nest

you don’t seem to wanna get dressed

Lordy child this mama knows

what it is like 

when you don’t want to wear clothes

Snuggle back in before the day begins

I’ll stop the clock and lock the door

stoke the fire and rock in my chair

It’s raining out there, anyhow

I share my bed

My face is braille to your tiny hands

briefly; in the night

assured you are not asleep in the grasses, left out for the lions

you settle without unsettling

and I wonder at your wholeness

grateful for your breathing

even and steady and time

which has become a gift

unfolding itself before me

in spite of itself 

truly amazing technology

(you my darling)

is indistinguishable from magic 

and you are surely magic
