Month of Poetry #29: Sevenling for a Red-Letter Day

My eldest girl started high school today. This sevenling is for her.

Three things she loves:
The beauty and surprises of mathematics; coaxing music from her guitar;
The comfortable enfolding of structured days.

Three things I want for her:
Room to grow; stimulus to learn;
A safe passage through the rough seas ahead.

Far away, someone is singing a sad and glorious song.
