In the Winter Sunshine

Blonde curls and bright blue eyes
Sugar cookie smiles
Splashing in the winter sunshine
The little one comes swimming
Really just toe tipping
Upturned nose at the water-top
“Look out baby!
I’m jumping!
I’m swimming!”
Bubbles and wild hazel eyes
A mama’s sure hands 
Coughs and tears in the slanted sunshine
“You alright baby!
You come jump and swim with me”
Together in the winter sunshine.
