Rock the cradle
hums the silence,
swaddle the aching story
in soft memories lullaby.
Push again
the breath of morning
into the arms
of waiting listen
before the wail
and stench of dying
digest the offering
of my needful retrospect.

Become the giggles
and glee of summer's lasting
when again
you are my whimsy
and I your wisdom.

I like this poem a lot, definitely not one to be skimmed over quickly. I read it several times.
