Family matters

An old man in autumn
or his woman in hers, need
but a chattering child or two,
to feel their spring again.

But small children are few now
and often distant too; so
the old man and his woman felt
a winter seep instead.

Said Vasudeva, the world is
your family, and therefore in
their neighbour’s home, learnt they
to imagine their more fleeting own.
