To A Ten-Months' Child

Late arrival, no
One would think of blaming you
For hesitating so.

Who, setting his hand to knock
At a door so strange as this one,
Might not draw back?

I had read this poem years back in a fantastic book called The Hotel New Hampshire. There is so much meaning in these lines that they cling to your mind even through so many years. Suresh
