Dough loves the girl with warm fingers--
It turns as brown as a kangaroo,
Baking just by being held in her hands.
The girl with warm fingers
Can steam the pool just by catching crawdads.
She can warm you, too, Miss Lonely,
By and by, just see if she can't.
Her coffee is the happiest coffee--
It never goes cold,
And the girl with warm fingers
Turns seeds into vines
All the time.
I want to live in the outback
With Miss Remarkable, Miss Sweeter Heater.
I want to live inside a coffee bean.
I want to forget I ever knew what winter was.
I want her to come down by the green-leaf waterside and snap me
Out of my shell like the first day of summer.
for One Shot Wednesday
