Her Little Shadows
(Mom Mother Poems)

I saw a young mother
with eyes full of laughter ..
And two little shadows
came following after.

Wherever she moved
they were always right there ..
Holding on to her skirt
hanging on to her chair.
.. Before her, behind her
an adhesive pair ..

Don’t you ever get weary
as day by day? ..
Your two little tag-a-longs
get in your way?”

She smiled as she shook
her pretty young head ..
And I’ll always remember
the words that she said.

It’s good to have shadows
that run when you run ..
That laugh when you’re happy
and hum when you hum ..
.. For you only have shadows
when your life’s full of sun.
