I've shared this poem once before, but it bears repeating. I love it so much.
Prayer for Our Daughters
by Mark Jarman
...May they find a place to love, without nostalgia
For some place else that they can never go back to.
And may they find themselves, as we have found them,
Complete at each stage of their lives, each part they add to.
May they be themselves, long after we've stopped watching....
(Read the whole thing here, at The Writer's Almanac.)
Robyn Hood Black has the round up this week at Life on the Deckle Edge. Robyn's post today is all about haiku, which made me hunt up the haiku posts on my blog -- bunches of them, here.
