|This parable of perseverance and hope demonstrates the difficulties people face in the struggle to fulfill that human need to procreate. Sharing the background of her long suffering and waiting exemplifies the want and need inside her. The last verse is deeply touching and fills the heart with happiness and absolute joy. That first human cry, "the wail of blessed life," which I have been honored to witness three times in my life, is a sweet sound I will never forget.
"Her wants no longer needs
She suckles him"
Congratulations to your brother and his wife! Welcome to the world little boy! Great piece of writing, poet! Thank you for sharing this joyous news with us!

|"She wanted and waited
And suffered silently"
You capture the plight of many women in this passage dear Blueberry, and with the mindset of 'perserverance' and 'faithfully complied' you also unwittingly (or purposefully) set a tone that applies to either men or women in the pursuit of anything good. Love how you have woven the psychological and emotional aspects into a fine tapestry of rejoicing. Superb insights! Blessings to you dear woman ...

|What a beautiful celebration! As we aimlessly wander, we succeed at nothing, with a prayer and a purpose, we can find something...She had a desire, she had a need, as you put it, she prayed for a gift and when His time was right...he delivered! :) Thank You, Lord~
Loved it !
Love and Peace~

|I love the way in which you paint the picture here, Taylor, only to lift it onto a glorious and transcendent conclusion in the final stanza. This is almost like a modern-day parable. And the beauty of your play on key words is breathtaking. Whether a birth has been relatively swift, or has tarried somewhat, there is just NO getting away from the absolute miracle of life... with both of mine I just have never really been able to get to grips with the idea that "a baby really is IN there" until the hard work is over and the sounds, sights and smells of life are here in all their mess and gorey glory! The most amazing thing on earth! My congratulations to your brother and his wife. And a big welcome to the precious little bundle of BIG joy! :)) And thank you, too, for such wonderful appreciation on my White Out write this evening. With love, Kate xx|
