One Single Impression: Beginning

. . . .. Love Began

Love began in May one bright sunny day
He said and she said and then all quiet
Quiet months worrisome months mother's wait
Come due time God's small miracle to obey

Love stayed on his tiny mouth opens wide
He said and they said hush dear little one
Your belly's full what mother can provide
To nourish you fine animals have died

Love cycle ended parents did their best
He said and she said go do what we've done
Big enough and learned there's no need to guess
Again God's time dear one you leave the nest

Now you have heard love grows in cyclic leaps
Two are joined as one love and parenthood
Small beginnings all preplanned say the least
Instinct God's gift to man and fowl and beast

Parenthood is a beautiful thing and a marvel to observe in God's creatures.
