As they play


in the ash-white light of noon


I hear that I am part of their story;


a character


in their chatter


amid light footfalls on earth


And later I am forgotten


in the chase and care of climbing


and when overcome


they reach up


and rest


head on my shoulder


Soon, I can just


About,


Move,


As they cling


And bob


To the motion


Of their walking ship


Name: Matthew M. C. Smith
