Reading Fairy Tales - Poem by Bill Grace

Reading fairy tales to daughter
Has helped remind me in a friendly way
Of the world's complexities and that pride
Of which I am most culpable
Is the greatest sin
And that love that does not seek to fill a hole in self
Does indeed give warmth and light
In a dark and cold world
Redeeming far more
Than even the best artist's imagination can conjure.
