After The Kids


After the kids grew up,

Raggedy Ann

married

a Moth

in the attic,

and they had a Child

with her patience and his wings...

so that, one night a man

looked up from his television to find

an Angel

sitting on the stairs.

Oh my gosh!, I adore this slip
of a fairy tale, Shay.

I wrote this when I was about 25. Not many from that time still hold up, but i think this one does. I'm really pleased you like it, Cynthia :-)
