My Lonely Child

My Lonely Child I heard a mother poet say My fertile fragile thought today Is like my baby born too soon Naked under electric moon Word maternal its under glass So my poem has had to pass. And I must stand by a window And I must look calmly somehow As others touch my lonely child.

Sometime's I think people can be protective of their writing as they are their children so a great metaphor.
