week 292 ~ a sonnet for baby S sound the horns

with 2 comments

me.292a sonnet for baby S sound the horns
so long coming so welcome in our hearts
see he grins and wriggles with a newborn’s
instinct for the right reaction then starts
to coo non-word words whose subtext imparts
a comfort being here with us so new
and yet exactly right worry departs
with winter’s snows and somehow we are through
to bluer skies and smiles yes crying too
for he firmly announces something’s wrong
until we figure out what we should do
but spring now fills our days with light and song
and we sing too breathing the scented air
for this sweet boy the answer to our prayer

my first Spenserian sonnet
