Back to school

First day back
   And the two little heads bobbing up and down
Their tiny feet pumping their pedals 
With trills of laughter trailing behind them

Are getting further from me. 

Their legs are stronger and their world larger.

I freeze on the on the sidewalk
Struck by their growing independence...
Both in awe of their perfection
And proud with a twist of melancholy

As they ride out to a world they are making their own.
