A wish for my Children


On this doorstep i stand
year after year
and watch you leave

and think: May you not
skin your knees. May you
not catch your fingers
 in car doors.May your
 hearts not break.

May tide and weather
waite for your coming

and may you grow strong
to break
all webs of my weaving
