Image for the poem drink the sun!

drink the sun!

for my beautiful daughter Kimberli,
on her birthday (September 6)

i saw your net worth
at your birth,  
when all the glad earth,
filled with mirth,
dispelled the fierce dearth
of hope’s girth,
kindling my slept dreams
at the seams.

you are the kindling
that i bring;
drink from the wellspring
of my zing.
fast am i fading
from the ring;
lose not life’s passion:
drink the sun!
