‘Once more the storm is howling, and half hid
Under this cradle-hood and coverlid
My child sleeps on.’ —W.B. Yeats

 

fresh snowfall

our slow drive home carrying

our newborn son

warmly wrapped in your blankets

how you slept the whole way home

 

for Jane Dougherty’s A Month with Yeats: Day Twenty-seven
