More Beautiful

than anything I might have pushed my tired mind to write today is this quote from my son:

"Icicles are stars crying."

I believe the reason good poetry is so powerful to so many of us adults is that it forces us to think, once more, like a child.

Don't worry Ruth-- temps are still in the 80s here. He said this after we read a book that had a picture of icicles in it.
