Song for Baby-O, Unborn
by Diane di Prima

Sweetheart
when you break thru
you'll find
a poet here
not quite what one would choose.

I won't promise
you'll never go hungry
or that you won't be sad
on this gutted

V Formation
by Karen Jansta

Remember birds that fly in V formation
Have no constant leader.

When your heart needs healing
You can still fly without beating your wings.

We Need To Teach Our Children
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

The children are our future...
We need to teach them all...
We need to show them how to be kind...
To help others if they should fall...

It’s the adults from which our kids learn...
We need to teach them to not judge others...
To teach our children to be tolerant...
To accept all our sisters and brothers...

Pity
by Camille Dungy

Christ bore what suffering he could and died
a young man, but you waited years to learn
how to heal. Only when you could did you
touch the man whose body blistered for yours.

You posted him no news for sixteen terms,
then just a signed graduation notice.

The letter he wrote that week asked only,
Now that your books are closed, can boys come in?

Do You Know
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

Do you know how much I love you
Even though we live apart...
Do you know how much I miss you
And always have right from the start...

I’m sorry your Mom and I used to argue...
But there’s one thing on which we both agree...
We truly love you with all our hearts...
You mean the world to her and me...

To All The Mother’s Around The World...
by Jeffrey Pipes Guice

You wake me with a hug...
As the sun begins to rise...
You ask if I slept well...
Wipe the sleep from my eyes...

You dress me for school...
In all my favorite clothes...
You tell me I look just perfect...
As only a loving mother knows...

If
by Estelle Jackson

If my love were enough...
You would rise with each new dawn
And fly on soundless wings;
Soar high above the earth
Released from Time and Things.

If my love were enough...
We could catch a wave and travel;
Riding on currents, mum and daughter -
To see the beauty and splendour

The Impossible
by Estelle Jackson

It is very difficult;
Verging on impossible.
But that which seems impossible
Must be made possible.
I must do it
For us both.
A time of change;
A time of growth.
Take all that I have
And all that I am.
