2 A Thank- You Keep in mind My daughter made illustrations through the pens you sent out, line drawings that indicate the points they represent, different from any type of illustrations she — at ten — had actually done, closer to genuine art, implying what the mind fills in. For her mother she made a flower vulnerable on its stem; for me, a lion, calm, consisted of, but not a handsome one. She drew a lion for me as soon as prior to, on a get-well card, and wrote I must be brave even when it’s hard. Such love is healing — as you know, my friend, especially when it comes unbidden from our youngsters despite the fregulations they check out so vividly in us. Who can love you as your kid does? Your child so ill, the brutal chemo, his looming loss owning you now — yet you would be this generous to think of my boy. With the pens you sent out she has made I hope a healing instrument.

3 The Ocean (Other Poem) The Ocean has actually its silent caves, Deep, quiet, and alone; Though tbelow be fury on the waves, Beneath them tbelow is none. The awful spirits of the deep Hold their communion there; And tright here are those for whom we weep, The young, the bbest, the fair. Calmly the wearied seaguys remainder Beneath their very own blue sea. The sea solitudes are blest, For there is purity. The earth has actually guilt, the earth has care, Unquiet are its graves; But serene sleep is ever tbelow, Beneath the dark blue waves.
