If you could see what I see through your eyes
Mark Karasick 2014


His father gave my son
his matter-of-fact manner, dogged slog,
egalitarian kindness, and blue eyes.
I gave my son
his love of walking and travel
and his resilience on the road-movie of his life.
He gave my granddaughter
her quirky sense of humour,
her mother gave her
eye-catching beauty.
I gave her love of dancing
and indifference to arithmetic.
