He was the promise of
Eggs in spring and
Saplings rising through ice
Grabbing life by the hand and
Running off

But it didn't take long for
Individual panic
And small-scale mass hysteria
To set in, wondering
Where he had left his voice

They stand over him
Clucking like chickens
Over-enunciating words
Eyes fixed
On the movement of his mouth

Colored crayons falling
From small fingers
He escapes
And his freedom seems
Everlasting to me

At two and a half
He holds the world upside down
Ignoring our concerns

The author's comments:
About my nephew, who is over two and a half and barely talks.
