    This is beautiful.

    Seems a tad whiny to me. Are a father's words so lightly applicable?

  3. David Wood Says:

    More the fathers words remembered when doing things shared in the past?

    I love the use of association here; equating words (of a parent) with stones, the illusion of weightlessness, skipping the surface until they inevitably sink (in). This one will stay with me, thank you.

    The weight of the father's words, the ultimately failed attempt to leave them behind, the once shared activity—this is a stunning poem. Thank you.
