Sympathy without Boundaries

for my wife on mother's day, 2003
the twenty-fourth anniversary of our betrothal

May 11, 2003

Clasping hands,
smelling the honeysuckle
   on a country road,
admiring a tree
   magnificently gnarled,
I'm with my friend.

She's quick to cry;
sympathy without boundaries,
   and generous passion,
Her soul belongs to beauty.
   She's a mother.

Four children;
   a husband;
   and a dog;
Messes multitudinous.

She laughs
   in spite of it all.
   She's our mother.
We love her.
