EveryEvery Girl Should Have a Poem Written for Her (21)

E____ A

Look at those curls
Those smiles
Capture me
Scoop me up and tell me
How we’re going to save the world
You and I
And she and them
To feed the hungry, the homeless
To find our voices so we may shout a determined NO
And murmur a soft sweet yes…
To find the beauty in fallen leaves
Well-worn books
And peek-a-boo games.
To laugh
To love—
All the silly things we’re thinking of—
And all who raise their voices
To the perilous sky
You, sweet thing
Hope incarnate
Ease the grief
Of an embittered heart.
