I Am Moon Shadow


I am Moon Shadow young, yet strong.
I wonder if we will ever bring mother over here.
I hear the glass brake as the demon boys brake the window.
I see father flying his glider.
I want to see my father fly someday.
I am Moon Shadow young, yet strong.

I pretend that the demon boys don’t scare me.
I believe that someday father will become a dragon again.

I touch the ashes of the fire that burned.
I worry that we won’t find someplace to be

I cry to see my mother again.
I am Moon Shadow young, yet strong.

I understand that I must help my father build Dragonwings.
I say that we have a good chance of making father fly.
I dream about father being a dragon.
I hope that father, mother, and I can live happily together.
I am Moon Shadow young, yet strong.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
