I?stand with you at edge of day


I stand with you at edge of day
and ride the rising dawn aloft;
my arms in love encircling you,
hugging tight
to keep the morning chill away.

And as we watch from balcony
advancing light recapture sable snow
and set the pine trees free
from night’s coverlet of captivity,
a vixen in winter-silvered livery
emerges from her den,
searches the air for signs of food –
or danger –
and begins her day of hunting
rabbits, mice and voles.

My hands caressing your swelling womb
rejoice in the gravid roundness there,
first child –
hibernating in your splendid womanhood –
grows in that dynamic space
through out this frosted season,
waiting to appear at edge of day
and ride his rising life abroad
come Spring’s prolific bud.
