A sevenling for my children's father

Three things he has bequeathed to them:
Wide-sewn eyes, chins that describe a point;
A stubborness for striving and for joy.

Three things he promised not to be:
Unjust, unkind;
Also unreasonable, in the way that children know.

The bed-borne tea steams gently in the quiet of soft embraces.

- Kathy, 6/9/15
