Write a “Baby” Poem for Robert Brewer’s Blog

It’s spring. Nature is glowing with new beginnings. This week’s prompt on Robert Brewer’s site is to write a baby poem. Mine is quick and rough. I’m sure you can do better.

Lambs

Already branded

they toddle

on unsteady legs

behind their

mothers in the

muddy field,

charges of long

tradition, herders

from the Pyrannes,

their ancestors

have surrendered

themselves

still mild

to feed and warm

ours. How

painful to give

thanks.
