Deal 1129: toybox

little wooden boy
complex strung toy
brought down with a blow
of edged head by crow
strings tangled askew
limbs and body flew
a low blow by far
strike child commence war

or put toys away
healthy another day


Deal 1128: short shaggy saga

renewed returning — as spring ever sprung
green grass regrowing — youth forever young
who what why where when — fine fishy foibles
forever lost, free — found gently joyful
lividly lost, lured — wild will-o’-the-wisp
fair full afraid yet — haunts hallowed with lisp
less scared less afraid — short shrift for shaking
narrow niched nightmares — o’er before being

sunlight sows safety — seems silly later
unmasked known unknown — and tall tale teller
