Standing before me, smiling, tall
Donning brand-name, second-hand clothes,
You acted like the Prince of the ball;
Fancy hair gelled, one small finger in your nose.

Sipping on a Shirley Temple, grinning at the lasses
While we waited for a table to free,
You refused to part with your dad's sunglasses,
And mesmerized the restaurant, your Muddy, and me.

Now staring at a stage of performers,
Your look of awe is the stuff poems are made of.
Your Ada had mist in the corners
Of eyes overcome with a grandfather's love.

This is not a tribute to that starry, magical eve.
It's not a poem of your boyish wonder.
It is an imprint of the mark that you leave.
It is a poem of the spell you put me under.

Author's Notes:
Took the boys to dinner and a show called Godspell.  What a night.  What a wonderful night.

There is nothing like watching them experience the joy of the world. You did an amazing job of capturing that feeling that just sets a heart ablaze! Through them, we are blessed with the ability to see the world anew!!

Another magical moment of Cole's spell. Dori, I love the heartwarming beauty of this. I hope you don't mind, I'm sending my muse over to badger you into doing more of this wonderful thing you do. Your ability to express your bservations is unequaled. I want more. More! ML
