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.
