Wonderfully Beautiful. Yes, if I was a parent I would better understand,
but that doesn't mean I didn't feel the passion and beauty of his poem.

I agree with Cherub's comment that you have to be a parent to understand
this. That said, I think Galway Kinnell's career boils down to this poem.
He existed to write this for all of us who understand. It captures the
moment all of us who know what is important aspire to. Beautiful Poem.

I love this poem. In fact, I enjoy it so much that I am writing an essay on
his use of imagery in it. I am married with two young boys and I can not
tell you how many times this has happend in our home! Kinnell is a genius
at molding an everyday occurence into a sublime moment.

I really enjoyed this poem. I read it first in my English 112 class and
thought it was really sweet. I think you have to be a parent to understand
the poem and see the beauty in it - other wise you might not understand it.
I loke how the Child sees the parents "loving and snuggling" and wants to
join. And how the parents love each other so much and their son is like
the center and proof of their love. It's just cute :-)
