January Child

Licking snowflakes from your chin,
Ever thoughtful, inner smile.
I watch you from my window.
You're my world for just a while.

Can you see me dancing near you,
Twirling, silent, somewhere in my past?
My nose is pressed up to the glass,
Wanting all that's in my head to last.

You tilt your head, enough to see me there.
I see the tiny nod, that you don't mind
My reverie. You've brought me calm.
I turn to you for solace. To unwind.

An image that I can see as I read your poem, you on the inside with your little mouse friend, and this child dancing in the snow. See if the mouse wants to go outside and dance too.

Katy, this is an absolutely beautiful poem and expresses exactly my feelings for my own children. It's a stunning little poem that has touched my heart.
It's so good to see you others have said, the Den just hasn't been the same without you.

i like the title, very much. i like that it, and the piece, implied that it was an actual child and/or someone acting "as if."

We live through our children, even if it's only in memories returned. I enjoyed this little beauty of a poem, Katy. And they're right. We're so glad you're back. Best wishes for the new year.

Being a January child myself, I feel a special kinship with this poem. Katydid, this den just hasn't felt like home without you. I'm so glad you're back and I'll bet everyone else is, too.

May the snow fall gently on every child's tongue. May the gods of peace clothe the world in white. Thanks, Katy.
