To Cradle Hope

"To Cradle Hope" is a poem of thanksgiving for those who are hopeful; those who are optimistic, empathetic, and kind, and those who are always looking for the good in others and bringing light into our world.

To Cradle Hope

A gift, the one who carries hope

who cradles hope

as a shepherd bears a lamb

as a child shares a toy

as a lover knows the beloved

Wrong, somehow, to think a burden

a heavy load, sometimes, nonetheless

to possess that something

that somebody seeks so desperately

and on some days, needs so keenly
