Gabriel's First Poem, for Mommy

I love you like the sun loves setting on the horizon
I love you like the river loves flowing down the mountain
I love you like the plug loves the drain
I love you like apple pie loves icing
I love you like rain loves splashing
I love you like the sun loves the moon
I love you like hugs love kisses.

(Narrated to Mommy at age 3 years, 3 mos, while splashing in the tub with little brother Peter, in these words precisely. A spontaneous and original response--albeit in the style of a book we have called "I Love You, Good-Night"-- to a few simple words from me: "I love being a mommy to you, little boys." Gratitude bringing forth beauty. Material for later blog post indeed!)
