Your Music comes early, Grandson:
Eleven months, and I hold you
Through your first Handel--
Feeling you reverberate with the tympani--
Sensing as you sense the Hallelujah--
Knowing that you honestly know this Art--
Taste? or Memory?
And Wonder--wonder at the role
Of the Grand-sire.
Author's Note: Holding my 11-month-old grandson through a "Messiah Sing-Along" 14 December 2013.
