READING ESL: Family Time (poem)

Family Time

Get into bed, my love,

lay with me under golden covers

let me hold my hand

on your oven

and feel our son

bounce around your womb.

We’ll cocoon ourselves

together creating a warm hearth

to raise our children in.

As one we know no bounds

traveling to foreign places.

friends will think we are mad

To be so far from home.

Home is everywhere

We’re together.

Thomas Napoli

Thanks again to Tom for letting me post his poetry to READING ESL.

Poems, like songs, sometimes have a hook to pull you in. When I read this, the image and idea of golden covers was the hook that pulled me into this poem.
