Another "classic" from the Sorrenti archives - I love the metrical rhythm in this, the loose rhyme, and the whimsical look at our mortal experience - excellent.... d:-)

Really musical Chris! Feels to me, written as if one where speaking or singing it to the baby. This a treasure. Fav+. Thank you!

A real spiritual lesson here, Chris - and from the year of my own birth no less. Wonderful read and thanks for sharing this one :) -Kat

I had not seen this earlier. What a pleasure to read, and I really like the conclusion.

Chris, the title is much more pregnant than I imagined as I began to read. I can't tell you the number of daddy images this evoked. Then you pull us beyond the living room all the way through the life cycle. Clever and profound.

I love this! It goes through all of a baby's life stages....until they eventually "fly aaway" and make a life of their own. Loved the images. It made me think of my own children. Great read and incredible write!
