Tigers - For Children

(For Julia Howe and to our grandchildren)

I am a tiger, roaring,
and you run, screaming, to hide
in the place where you always hide.
I hunt, heavy footed
on hand and knee
so that you can hear me coming,
snarling, sniffing,
cold, then warmer, then hot,
breath-holdingly,
heart-stoppingly hot.
Finally, I find you and
with roars and shrieks
you are wrestled to the ground
and eaten, laughing.

Now we are tiger and cub,
together hunting mummy,
who will not hide
and refuses to be our dinner
because she is tired.
Mummy ...

desolation.

Even when I turned from leaving
