maude bought her dad this lovely poem book for father’s day recently – she saw that we have already collected a few of the other books in the series – fatherhood – poems about fathers, everyman’s library pocket poets. such a touching present.
To my daughter
Bright clasp of her whole hand around my finger,
My daughter, as we walk together now.
All my life I’ll feel a ring invisibly
Circle this bone with shining: when she is grown
Far from today as her eyes are far already.
