Beatrix is Three -- Adrian Mitchell

       
(Poem #810) Beatrix is Three
 At the top of the stairs
 I as for her hand. O.K.
 She gives it to me.
 How her fist fits my palm,
 A bunch of consolation.
 We take our time
 Down the steep carpetway
 As I wish silently
 That the stairs were endless.
-- Adrian Mitchell
Another poem which stands or falls by the strength of its final line... the
fact that I'm running it suggests that the former case holds <g>.  Indeed, I
think it's quite a successful (if slight) venture - one of those all too
rare poems which capture the essence of a moment, of an emotion, so exactly
that it makes you think you know precisely what the author felt at the time
of composition. Very nice.

It captures perfectly those little moments when you have small children. They last a few seconds, yet the memory and the emotion lasts a lifetime.
