Young Mother

Young mother with her baby boy
 dressed warmly in green caudoroy.
 Bounces him against her shoulder.
 As the day fades and grows colder.
I watch them for a moment; so full of joy!
  Every young mother loves her baby boy!
 The way she smiles for him, the way he laughs!
 She’ll have treats for him; bananas cut in half!
And she sees me watching, smiles at me.
 Some glorious things cannot be you destiny.
 I wave back at her, thinking of lost lovers;
 how many of them now are young mothers.
