    A Baby Asleep After Pain

    As a drenched, drowned bee
    Hangs numb and heavy from a bending flower,
    So clings to me
    My baby, her brown hair brushed with wet tears
    And laid against her cheek;
    Her soft white legs hanging heavily over my arm
    Swinging heavily to my movements as I walk.
    My sleeping baby hangs upon my life,
    Like a burden she hangs on me.
    She has always seemed so light,
    But now she is wet with tears and numb with pain
    Even her floating hair sinks heavily,
    Reaching downwards;
    As the wings of a drenched, drowned bee
    Are a heaviness, and a weariness.
