Child within My Heart

Child within My Heart

Child within My HeartCarefree, this bundle
we bring into life,
shielded from the trials
we face, the worries
that plague us.

Though life is short,
it will not pass her by
without challenge. With
our love and guidance,
she will meet
the lessons it offers.

And so she sleeps,
peaceful,
untroubled.

This is my response to Jane Dougherty’s A Month with Yeats: Day Twenty-Seven (each day a new Yeats quote)

“Once more the storm is howling, and half hid
Under this cradle-hood and coverlid
My child sleeps on.”
W.B. Yeats
