Thanks for the friendly welcome...
I love any and all feedback. I like that switch of perspective, and finding out if my poetry conveys what I'm attempting to communicate.
I wrote this poem shortly after the birth of my first daughter. It's fairly simplistic, not a lot of deep meaning. It's meant to express the protectiveness of a parent watching over a sleeping child. The "Out hate/out rage" is my vain wish to keep all the evil of the world from ever touching her.
Thanks again for the welcome!
