MONDAY'S CHILD #38


                                                     Illustration/ Fernando Falcone

The Tea Party.  Alice in Wonderland.  Wish I was there.  Leave it to Monday's Child #38 ,which asks us to write a piece for children.  Which character would I be ?  Who do I relate to the most?  Let's see....


A GIRL NAMED ALICE

I am the other Alice,
not the famous one in Wonderland.
But just a girl
who, day after day,
keeps falling down a rabbit hole.

You'd think I'd be
a bit more careful by now,
but the hole keeps moving around
in a most magical sort of way.

So there I go
tumbling
down
again.

And when I see
a shiny pocket watch
in a White Rabbit's grasp,
I know it's time to reach for the key,

open the door
to the garden once more,

through which I'll fit
when I take a sip of "Drink Me",
in my very own Wonderland.

Lyn

this is a marvelous creation of a whimsical and creative mind. C.S. Lewis would be honored and so would the other Alice.

Have a nice week end.
