Chorus to Childbirth

unsplash-logoKelly Sikkema

Brick upon brick

The royal castle stands

Buried in the sand


Click after click

The four-faced clock chimes

Alone in the dark


Wave after wave

I watch the next ship

Dock at the bay


Watch after watch

Eyes pierce the curtains

I welcome you home


Spell after spell

I listen to your heart

Beat feebly upon mine


Month after month

I wait for a baby’s cry

Announce a new life.
