William Stafford Quotes: With Kit Age Seven At The Beachwe Would

With Kit, Age Seven, At The Beach
We Would Climb The Highest Dune,
from There To Gaze And Come Down:
the Ocean Was Performing;
we Contributed Our Climb.
Waves Leapfrogged And Came
straight Out Of The Storm.
What Should Our Gaze Mean?
Kit Waited For Me To Decide.
Standing On Such A Hill,
what Would You Tell Your Child?
That Was An Absolute Vista.
Those Waves Raced Far, And Cold.
"How Far Could You Swim, Daddy, In Such A Storm?"
"As Far As Was Needed," I Said,
and As I Talked, I Swam.
— William Stafford —
