Beautiful and Insightful Parenting Poems
Two poems by my college friend Paige, mother of six and dairy farmer in upstate New York:
For mothers of young teens: I am not a cartographer, but I have travelled some.
For mothers of two-year-olds: The Good Young Days.
(she's the mother of both right now)
She also writes incredible prose:
"Somewhere along the range I have lost my good humor, or let it slide down the steep places to languish in ravines."
(from an essay about a family hike and moving mountains or being moved by them)
Still along the lines of parenting, love this touching prose about his son by adoptive dad Shaun Groves: The Puzzle I Love.
