Her Feet Don't Reach

her feet don't reach
but her smile does
way beyond
the border of the path

she points her chin
to the sky to look into
eyes which have seen
6 more years than she

peering into a mirror of
fair resemblance
and drinking in
her tender love of life

and tries with might
to be like a sister big
she runs to catch her
and the grown sister turns

with arms open wide
to bring her along for the ride
even though
her feet don't reach

joy is found in the
adoring smile
that reaches beyond
the border of the path

How much more appreciation I have for your poetry as I get to sit in your writing class! This is wonderfully sweet. And you are so very gifted with words.
