A new beginning...

I'm quite new to this idea but was encouraged to give it a try and so, here I am.

Not always being good at new beginnings, let me borrow from something old, a poem I wrote for my daughter when she was a babe.


there is music and poetry in her


a grace, a gift

saying simply that "you're acting silly,


and her easy joy is given kindly

to me.


I hope that this might be as silly as an overgrown kid and as simple and beautiful as a newborn child. But then, that is hoping for way too much.
