His Lap

His lap is their island
They wait all day to climb
into some secret love there
They play distance
sing other and elsewhere
free from the ordinary day
protected from self-tyranny
and small boredoms

Reminds me of when I was a small child, I used to play around my dad's lap like this....he'd crossed one leg over the other knee, and that would make a cool "hole" to crawl up under and through! Thanks for sharing !!
