Tyke Kids--By d. n. simmers--Canada

Tyke Kids

" Jump away, jumping boy;
the boy I was shouts go."

           Geoffrey Hill

There on a three wheel tricycle with a yelling push
with his love, blonde, holding on behind.

This is the image of a hill and to be pushed
towards and the going up that will take us

down. Going down.

Is this what will happen? Does it come from a dream?

Love. Holding on to his back. Their screams.
while winds are hot against their necks.

Feelings fresh.

And then coming back down
together. Alive.

Finding her still holding on
while the wheels are going down

all the hills, then

up again.

Knowing they are together.
With the wind and the sky.
