parks james | two years old

by far the most notable thing about you, one i hope will stay forever, is how delightful you are. you are so spirited, easygoing, and happy. friends, your teachers, other moms- so many people comment on what a joy you are. i wish i could take credit for this but your personality, my love, has been all you from the start. you were born with kind eyes- i saw them the very first time i looked at you.

"late spring" from felicity part II called Love

Finally the world is beginning
to change, its fevers mounting,
its leaves unfolding.
and the mockingbirds find
ample reason and breath to fashion
new songs. They do. You can 
count on it. 
As for lovers, they are discovering
new ways to love. Listen, their windows are open.
You can hear them laughing.
Without spring who knows what would happen.
A lot of nothing, I suppose.
The Leaves are in all in motion now
the way a young boy rows and rows
in his wooden boat, just to get anywhere. 
Late, late, but now lovely and lovelier.
And the two of us, together- a part of it.
