our daughter's eyes
and post notes and photos about your poem like vernon witmer.
We watched, so close, our daughter grow,
to see what she might see,
beauty bursting all around
wherever she may be.
We watched her see a rainbow
grace the face of evening skies.
We watched her hold a kitten close
and chase the butterflies.
We watched her at the ocean
gather sand and shell and foam.
We watched her run from out the woods
with outstretched arms for home.
We watched her gather leaves in fall
and play in winter snow.
We watched her, more with heart than eyes,
more times than she may know.
So proud her mum and I both stood
and watched her grow to womanhood.
Of all the beauty we may see
between the earth and skies;
there is no sight more beautiful
than in our daughter’s eyes.
