simple love

This picture of my son reminds me of these lines from Edna St. Vincent-Millay’s poem, Love in the Open Hand –

Love in the open hand, no thing but that,
Ungemmed, unhidden, wishing not to hurt,
As one should bring you cowslips in a hat
Swung from the hand, or apples in her skirt,
I bring you, calling out as children do:
"Look what I have!—And these are all for you."
