I bought my niece a little book of stories and drawings entitled "Traveling Light" by Brian beautiful and this is the lead-off poem (all the qualities of a lead off batter I think...gets the book to first base)


In those days,
we finally chose
to walk like giants
and hold the world
in arms grown strong
with love

And there may be
many things we forget
in the days to come,

but this will not be
one of them.

and one more:

Fragile World

It's a very fragile
world, she told us,
so walk carefully
everywhere you go

and we promised
to remember
for as long
as we could.

Peace to you all tonight.
