Hawaiʻi Sonnet 63 (for KL)

I race my children on the wind
again to be a child in time and tag
the kid out now, too slow now
slowing to catch, fading in my drawing time
then this time
if
I will
run, then run, and run again
not after them, but for them
and for me back then, I sing
more breathless each time, I sing
knowing this Time, him running hard and fast
so if not me in the end, I sing, I sing
may all my children catch the sun
