For Asa D. Seeley

You’re closer at your birth
To your roots in the earth
Than you’ll ever be
When you’re old like me.
Little daughter girl,
You’re part of an older world,
You're part of an older world.

I love your sunshine mind
That I let far behind
Years and years ago
In the winter’s snow.
Little daughter girl,
I’m part of a colder world,
I’m part of a colder world.

But I remember
In times gone by,
When you and I were one,
I remember the sun
And how it shone
On me.

Though in years we’re far apart
There’s no distance in my heart
From the atavistic wild
In which I am the child.
Little daughter girl,
You’re part of an older world,
You’re part of an older world.

It's simply that you are a "true" poet, Paddy. I strive thus to be, and sometimes, I feel that I am... ...(but rarely). Thank you for sharing this; and what a gift for Asa. Love and peace,

The connection between generations runs deep. And the world gets older with each generation.
