My daughter Kate married Darren in July 2014. In January this year, their son, Frank, was born. I took this portrait of father and son a few hours later:
The New Boys
He'll support Coventry City
And play, unabashed, with the girls on the playground.
He'll charm old ladies, and when she's too frail to walk, he'll
Fetch his grandmother her gin at family weddings.
There'll be laughter, a lot of it, and he'll wear sorrow like a mac
To be tossed aside when the sun shines.
His sister, yet unborn, will adore him, and he
Will always be her tormentor and her knight.
But for now, he lies in his father's arms, dreaming,
Not of the way it was
