Watching Them Grow

“The sun warmed the upturned earth that day. 
The small seed placed in the furrow to grow 
shrank inside as the outside wrinkled. 
The earth grew dark and damp and cold.
 Shriveling hurt until the sun drew forth 
from the ache 
a leaf.” 
Claire Pedretti

Watching Them Grow
By Elece Hollis

Old as I am
I have seen many things.
The greatest, I think,
Is the growth of a child
The infant––then the crawler 
Then the toddler
Then able to run
To ride a bike
Changes in so short a time
From a babe in arms
 to a real person
Running, playing, 
 the big, big world!
