“Happy those early days! when I shined in my angel-infancy.”
Henry Vaughn – The Retreat
Jake and Walt at two weeks. 
They arrived five weeks early.
Their beautiful mama is 50. 
Their dad’s an old geezer.
Aunt Debbie visited them yesterday.
I just couldn’t get over the size of their hands and the length of their fingers.
Definitely classical pianists’ hands.
Just don’t tell their dad. 
He thinks they will play professional football.
 Sleep now, Little Walt.  
Dream of playing Mozart.
Jake is stirring, snuggling with his mom. 
“Mom, I will play Rachmaninov.”
Keep dreaming, tiny angel-infants.
