The Baby’s Laugh

She brought flowers to the garden,

water to the pond

Fresh stripes to line the zebra’s back,

and melody to song

 

A background to the rising sun,

brush strokes to the paint

New breath to hold the baby’s laugh

—and love to cure the hate

 

(St. David’s Pennsylvania: January, 2020)
