The baby fell in the water and his sister went in after him.
She opened her eyes under water for the first time,
And caught him like an egg.
It was hard to find the best way to the surface.
When she and her baby brother were back on the rocks,
He breathed air.
She breathed air.
There was enough air to laugh or cry or yell.
He laughed his pure laugh in his wet clothes.
She would always be his sister.
