To You Mum

June 15, 2008
By James Wolf, Western Springs, IL

Happy Mother's Day to my dear Mum,
Author of my personality
Pleased, I hope with what you read in me;
Pleased, I hope with episodes to come.
Yet now I, too, would get some pleasure from
Making you the book in which I see,
Of all the players in my family,
The central character, whom I would plumb.
How beautiful to move in that direction!
Each to each a separate source of pleasure,
Reading in the other's happiness,
'Mid much description, underlying love.
So would we deepen the connection,
Discovering new passages to treasure
As we follow time towards tenderness,
Yearning for what years unread will prove.
