this is a love poem for you

Love is a story told

in the tight fold of families

told in the cwtch

when you hold

a child through growing

love is a beacons

starlight shining through darkness

a closeness no oppressor

can out do or overcome

love is its own brightness

when you hold

when you cwtch* a child

this is a love poem for you

Cwtch* is a Welsh word with no English language equivalent. It is the place in the crook of the arm where a child is held from infancy onward…young babies and infants are held by their mothers using a woolen shawl wrapped in the “Welsh way” which allows both arms to be free. The child is held next to the mothers heart and listens to the mothers voice and much else beside. The cwtch is a place of reassurance and comfort — and love.

Love is at the heart of radicalism. Love is at the heart of Resistance.
