Mischief-Maker


Illustration by: Clara Burd

He looked so sweet
all tucked up amid
the cottontails and brown hares
Captivated by his bucket full of
sweet sensations
Barley Sugar
Coconut Ice
Fruit Drops
Peppermint Patties
How can one such small boy ever decide
One might have thought I was hidden or disguised...
so engrossed that he did not notice my presence
Behind me sounds of running bare feet and giggles grow near
A Hop Skip and a Jump away
The spell of make-believe is broken
He stares up at me in amazement
Grinning from dimple to dimple

“The universe sent angels to inspire us in the essence of children”
