At The Clue Store In The Mall
by Nancy Ames
(Maybe you can get one there.)
She's got one small adorable
song in her head
and she can't wait to hear
what her other friend said.
But - like - why is the garden store
so full of all those daffodils?
Why do they seem to smile and try to
hide their terror of this blossoming sun?
It's because of a long summer day
and the heat that kills
every bright-eyed little flower
who has no legs to run.
Author's Note: Innocent of history, they are like cut flowers, decorative, rootless and doomed...
