Poets Walk: "she gathers clouds"

Location on Poets Walk Map: 52


See by Sally Bittner Bonn


a little girl

           and by little I mean a breath of a girl

           hardly higher than her mother’s hip

bending to the side

her corduroy jumper’s edge

graces the pavement, grass tips

she picks a dandelion

scoops a handful of dirt

she gathers clouds

                               tucks them into her pocket
