    First Flight

    Remember
    what our ten-year-old
    love
    felt like
    that heat-laden afternoon
    when we held hands
    a first time
    and stopped along the pond
    to watch a red-wing
    in the rushes
    observing us
    from its reedy perch
    swaying,
    as if prying
    that tender moment
    into our deep hearts
    for a lifetime--
    or was it only in mine?
