Within and without

for EAK, grand-daughter

Why does this infant smile –
rosy cheek set glad
and gentle on the
breast?

Wind! – I hear you say.
Ah, yes, of course, yet
still I would venture
here

that this curled lip
and bright light behind
closed eyes is further
due

to synaptic growth
and the way a child’s
mind begins here to
wind

within and without
the grace of human
love
