a child knows (07 Mar 2007)

17 Jul

a child knows a scraggy feather
is shiny underneath

a child knows the only thing she holds
is the only perfect gift

a child knows she can look
another in the eye boldly

a child knows words
are completely unnecessary

a child knows when a gift
need not be understood

a child knows an angel
drops feathers

a child knows only
love and protection
