Little Girl Lost

A little girl
in a butter-yellow dress
sits beneath
a dogwood tree
stringing a crown
of violets and buttercups
glancing up
through new spring green
wishing for the day
when she will be a woman
wishing her time away

A woman
in a russet dress
sits beneath
a dogwood tree
weaving a wreath
of amber leaves
glancing up
through autumn fire
wishing for the day
when she was a child
wishing for some time
