in her room at the prow of the house
where light breaks and the windows are tossed with linden.
my daughter is writing a story
i pause in the stairwell , hearing
from her shut door a commotion of typewriter- keys
like a chain hauled over a gunwale.
young as she is, the stuff
of her life is a great cargo, and some of its heavy;
i wish her a lucky passage.
but now it is she who pauses
as if to reject my thought and its easy figure.
a stillness greatens in which.
the whole house seems to be thinking.
and then she is at it agian with a bunched clamor
of strokes and again is silent.
