Ocean City 2001

for Jake

He is a sun-bronzed god
reigning in my heart,
with his regulation
golf course hair
and sturdy legs;
winning smile, and
eyes that reflect mine
except that his twinkle.

He stands, indignant and proud,
with all the power his
5 1/2 year old ego can muster.
He is sweet with the affection 
only an innocent heart can bestow.
He is my best work.

My only son.
