Music and a Poem


2. It's March! Happy March! March means spring and daffodils and a month-long birthday celebration for me and Baby. 


Father's Song

Yesterday, against admonishment,
my daughter balanced on the couch back,
fell and cut her mouth.
Because I saw it happen I knew
she was not hurt, and yet
a child’s blood’s so red
it stops a father’s heart.
My daughter cried her tears;
I held some ice
against her lip.
That was the end of it.
Round and round; bow and kiss
I try to teach her caution;
she tries to teach me risk.
—Gregory Orr

5. Walk of the Earth does some creative covers. Thanks, Jo.

6. Still real into First Aid Kit, as terrible as their band name is, as mediocre as their music videos are.

7. This. A Downton Abbey rap. Oh goodness. (Thanks, Eileen).
