When reading to children, one should also read the child.


 

THE LAST PAGES OF SLEEPING BEAUTY

 Look at them‑‑

the Prince just stumbles in

chasing a wild pig.

One dry kiss and

the Princess falls for him,

the first thing she sees.

Her father lays a banquet

and a few gold coins on

the groggy peasants.

 

Look at this kid,

my daughter, who only asked

if I would read the story,

not why I was made,

why I am her father,

how long will she love me.

Not caring what happens

between now and morning,

ear on my heart,

she sleeps and leaves me

holding the old story.
