To a Daughter Leaving Home
When I taught you / at eight to ride / a bicycle, loping along / beside you / as you wobbled away / on two round wheels, / my own mouth rounding / in surprise when you pulled / ahead down the curved / path of the park, / I kept waiting / for the thud / of your crash as I / sprinted to catch up, / while you grew / smaller, more breakable / with distance, / pumping, pumping / for your life, screaming / with laughter, / the hair flapping / behind you like a / handkerchief waving / goodbye.
