You are joy
when it needs breath
to speak, to laugh
your smile created
to imbue the world
with hope
Son of Adonis and Hermes
a muse who needs no sisters
yet welcomes all
Delight limns your voice
as morning glow
on hummer’s wings
the thrum of dancing movement
as you flit from dream to dream
is echoed in the strident beat
of every heart that ardently follows
Yet there are deeper places
a mind sharpened
by inquisitive nature
and a passion for harmony
for justice, and joy
Bright little bird
you teach us
how to enjoy life
how to love it
Your arrival is like a light
that dispels fearful darkness
And in your eyes
full of deep mirth
and harmless delightful secrets
others find peace
and the most precious gift
of healing laughter
