just sitting there today,
taking a break after
mowing for nearly two hours,
I noticed the mama and papa wrens,
darting back and forth,
between the birdhouse
and the trees, and the grass,
getting food
for their babies,
and it reminded me
of all the years
that your mom and I
have done pretty much
the same thing;
and I just wanted
to take a moment
to express my joy
at how well all three of you
are chirping
these days and
how I would give you
my last bite.

June 25, 2009, for the three.
