Sue Leigh Poetry

After the child’s visit

 

The rooms return to their quiet

the colours and paints put away

the name has been guessed

the Johnny-cake eaten

the ring retrieved from the fish

Catskin has married her prince

 

mostly, it all ends happily

in this world where the word

might make things right,

virtue, a kiss
