as a 73 year old grandmother I read this poem on a New York City bus. It
so moved me that, lacking paper and pencil, I memorized it. I loved " your
feet are sore" but the last line really hit hard. dds

So simple a poem, and yet profoundly true and touching. I felt the sadness,
being a father of a growings teenage daughter, and realizing, yes she is
taller, and I am older, and I must let her go. Thank you Thomas Lux.
