the orange hue of city lights
twinkle against a navy sky
watching over a writer writes
tales of the day show in her eyes
on her way to the land of dreams
where a little girl sits by a stream
but a few more words on the page
before she vacates today’s stage.
Shrove Tuesday, how I adore you!
Thanks for letting me eat pancakes.
I ate them with ice cream, it’s true
my new year diet is at stake!
But the way you slid off the pan
a tiny pikelet in my hand
packed with lemon and baileys too
making all my day dreams come true!
