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
