lotus eaters 3

At last the grandchild visits
a lovely silent child
who smiles shyly
sees all
investigates with
little gurgles of approval

the news is on TV
and grampa turns
and watches
what caught the eye
what caught the ear
across the globe

the newspaper is on his lap
he’s up to date
and well informed
he says

The silent child
stares up at him
and knows
that’s how I’ll be
