“Happy Easter!” you said.
I’m trying to smile
as I thank you.
“She’s called Rosamunde”, you said,
a pretty name for a pretty chicken.
I try to smile as I thank you.
for Easter eggs to come.
I wonder if I should show you my new garden,
but perhaps now is not the best of times.
I wonder what Rosamunde will make
of it’s neat patchwork of flowers
and it’s spotless deck.
I try to smile
as I thank you
your generous gift
of Easter eggs to come.
