With A Small Child



Forty tons
if an ounce,
One stone- a boulder
and a couple
with a small child,
near where Hemingway lay.

A countryside
remote and tall
requiring devotion
the strength of a couple,
with a child,
where Hemingway lay.

Within a land
trod quickly by some-
mountain and creeks
a soul-creeping beauty,
and a young couple
with a small child near
where Hemingway lay.

While visiting Idaho to see my Son and his beautiful family it occurred to me that they were strong enough- stronger than this life might require.
