No Greater Teacher

For Max...

[Who made so much possible
With abiding love and gratitude]

What chance delight I take in days,
In facing vagaries of fate,
Or laughing in denialís face,
Whatever skills I have to glean
The sunspot in the deepest fog
To know that I deserve good care,
Was gleaned in some odd mystic path
From love your parents gave to you
So richly and abundantly
There was enough to shower me -
[and God know many others too]
To change my world from pain and rue
To self appreciation due
To every one - but in my life
A gift from you
It always, only, came, from you
And this is Max and this is love
And nothing else is quite as true.

With love, always
Rowena [Silver]
