A poem for National Poetry Day

It is a truth universally acknowledged:

The absence of noise created in a space,

By children peacefully sleeping,

– Their bedclothes wrapped like warming snakes,

Chests gently raising against the weight of your world –

Can calm the roughest parental seas,

And remind us of the love that burns deep within us.
