Easter flowers from my very favorite youngest sister.
Today is a day like any other: twenty four hours, a
little sunshine, a little rain.
Listen, says ambition, nervously shifting her weight from
one boot to another -- why don't you get going?
For there I am, in the mossy shadows, under the trees.
And to tell the truth I don't want to let go of the wrists
of idleness, I don't want to sell my life for money,
I don't even want to come in out of the rain.
I don't want to sell my life for money.
Words so perfect I could hardly breathe when I first read them.
Or as I lay in bed last night thinking about them.
