For Pauline

You spread yourself large and warm

around those you love,

holding them close and free

in the hollow of your wing.

Then you hoist your love high above them,

strong as a mainsail

against all weather,

or cast it wide before them

silken and strong,

gathering all that is needed

at just the right time.

You are silk and linen,

cotton and canvas,

soft and strong,

embroidered like no other.

And you make us part of your tapestry

…….our Pauline.
