Message for My Daughter

Like a deep red river you flow through my existence

Collecting gentle raindrops that fall on distant mountains

Into a singing dancing torrent that rushes into life

Tumbling crazily through joy and pain and love

Carrying mysterious remnants of dark green jungles

And wild memories of animals and exotic ancient lives

You nourish my spirit as you pass through my heart

Linking my being to the fibres of the universe

Though time inexorably draws your life forward

Until you flow on to meet the great ocean

We have exchanged precious particles of our lives

That you carry with you beyond mortality beyond oblivion

To a distant fertile region outside of our imagination

There you will plant gardens to nourish new generations

Connecting their being with the beginning of time

It does not open fully at the froont and must be, must be pulled on…over the head. In some versions, when rolled up, the hood or front pocket doubles as a pouch into which the rest of the coat is pushed. It became very popular in the United Kingdom during the 1970s, going by such trademarks as Pack-a-Mac & “Cag in a Bag”.[citation needed]  When John Winston How…
