|I love this "poem of two parts", Diana; the immediacy is palpable and the visualisation keen. To me, the "I take your hand" is almost a catechism, a call and response of cause and effect; a summons to memory - and this part of the whole could definitely stand alone. Particularly, I think, as here you refer to "your" hand, whereas at the first there seems to be two "Little Hummels" to whom you wave your doting kerchief? Like others, I have been genuinely moved by your telling details and emotion expressed here; something close to every mother's heart. xx|

|A mother's love is the earth holding firm but tenderly, to the roots of a tree,
holding it to be upright and tall, letting loose enough as not to shackle its freedom,
but only to nurcher it.
Such a sweet write Diana.
