Average Children

I feel sorry for the little ones,
That evoke not one response,
For I birthed and loved them just the same,
As those that gather praise at once.

I am always glad I held them,
Especially those that show no skill,
For even they reflect some part of me,
When writing nothing never will.

  1. As opaque as it is–in the fashion of ED–I believe I know what it’s “about.” But I’m not telling, either . . .

  2. Ha! ED, opaqueness, and secrecy….oh my! None were necessarily intended, but I’ll take it. Makes it much more mysterious. 🙂 I am never quite sure what I intend when I write except to relay experience. I got out of bed in the middle of the night to write this down…I couldn’t sleep until I did. I am always curious about what your interpretation is. Personally, I enjoy reading poetry that creates discussion and exploration…but I couldn’t tell you if mine ever does. Thanks Glenn.
