Baby Jar Eyes


Just got through feeding the baby
When she picks up the empty jar
A distorted look made her giggle
Her appetite for attention need not go far

Her tongue searches for the last morsel
Her face painted with strained peas
Her eyelashes stuck to her brow
Knowing she has only Grandpa to please

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn

A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
