Ode to my baby sister Margaret

It seems like only yesterday

you taught your stuffed animals to read.

Now they are in college.

Your hair is so long

like a mermaid’s.

I borrowed your running shorts.

I’ll wash them before I give them back.

I’m glad your bed is high

with a net around it

so the boys can’t get in.

Since when do you play the banjo?

  1. P.S.
    I don’t LIKE like muffins.

  2. I’m so happy you fixed your blog link, Babushka. I thought you were a muffin spammer.
