The Child

*For Mat who is nearly 3*

the child says

“come sit by me”

my heart dances

and I sit

at the piano

he says again

“come sit by me”

I do

and our fingers dance together

across black and white

make tigers growl

loudly then softly

birds twitter,

softly then loudly

he will not sing

making space once again

for me

  1. Thank you, my darling friend. I have been waiting for the invitation…he has taken more time than his brother to warm up to me. Love you!

  2. This is so ABSOLUTELY wondrous — love to hear the tigers and birds and then the ending is so sweet – making space for me. God bless you and little Mat – now and forever more.
