A poem by Elsy that celebrates the innocence of babies, in Different Truths.
The tiny tot
saw her snapshot
at month three
‘look, baby brother!’.
‘no honey, it is not baby brother,
it is you, when a babe’.
To see if she got it right
‘Who is the babe in the picture?’
Like a parrot,
pat came her chirping,
“It is you, when a babe”.
