In Her Little House

In her little house with the sun streaming

Fire not water through the gauze window

Eyes squint with smiling and sunshine alike;

Beautiful brain from bright face is beaming.

Walls are angles; calculus; algebra;

Floor to roof trajectory formula

Figuring out the right arm curvature

From mouth to ceiling is only so far.

Brow furrowed, hand borrowed; just pull this close

She needs help and she needs letting alone

Working it all out, nudges here and there

Ladybird, book, bee, bird; fingers, toes, nose.

In her little house with the sun glowing

In eyes that dart from flowers to faces

Baby is still, but still going places

Learning, laughing, being, knowing; growing.
