when grandie v and i
have finished building our indoor winter fairy village
with jewels and feathers and sparkles, a flower vine swing, love tape, and puff ball beds
it is very important to write about it and invite them to move in tonight.
“when I sound the fairy call, gather here in silent meeting,
chin to knee on the orchard wall, cooled with dew and cherries eating.
merry, merry, take a cherry, mine are sounder, mine are rounder,
mine are sweeter for the eater, when the dews fall, and you’ll be fairies all.”
miss kennedy you are invited to my birthday party.
she worked very hard on this
for such a long time
what an effort this took to create
how to spell each word
letter by letter
putting it in an envelope
giving it to me to open and read
big smiles on both sides.
i don’t know that it’s even her birthday.
“effort only fully releases its reward
after a person refuses to quit.”
sad i wasn’t able to take them up on this invite.
i didn’t even know curious george drank coffee.
you always learn something at a conference.
