Playhouse
It was the first place I cooked dinner, Did dishes and was mom, My first load of laundry, And swept the porch off. Watched the birds in the yard And the bugs on the sill Planted flowers for spring And...

Silence
You say my silence is arrogant, but I say it's not. I find it respectful. You say my silence is rude, but I say it's not. I find it is innocent. You say my silence is inelegant, but I say it’s not. I ...
