Sleeping Children

Sleeping eyes all

Fringed around me.

Soft arms as pliant

As clouds

And lips unclouded by thoughts

Parted in slumber,

The gentle moving

Rhythm of breathing.

Fingers, five pronged

In the grey dark,

Charcoal blown

Over fluid forms

Soft as velvet–

My babies

In the night.

December 25, 1950

A poem from Eugenia that she would have certainly written for Mr. Trump

Oh, perfect one,

I do not see

How thou

Can bear to be

With any one

But thee!
