Sarah is Five Today

Here is a poem I wrote for our Sassafras.


There is a small girl
I know, now five.
A bouncing-horse knee-bound,
Nocturnal sprite
Who loves High Tea
Down low on the floor.
What's more,
For me to mimic friends and herself
(Twinkly elf!)
Will she grow to be
Like me?
Hide-bound to task and list?
Or heaven-bound,
Arms open to gifts like
Tea on the carpet and
Bronco-riding at bedtime?
