The Baby's Smile

It gave more mileage than it promised
 with that first delight;
 I could not let it go, for there
 implicit in its first appearance
 was a cautious pathway
 for a newborn light that crept
 (though with a stunning flash)
 upon my morning reverie with chills
 of joy--yet centuries of mystery.
 From where did it emerge? 
 What ragged saint in sagging skins
 first saw it, dreamed its origins
 within him, first found himself aware
 that love alone defined
 its gracious gift?

 That was the plus that unfolded
 in an old man who saw on facebook
 his grandaughter-in-law's
 photographic greeting to the world
 on a Sunday morning!
