ella’s story

Date December 11, 2008

There is a little girl

who lives among the hills.

She runs and plays beneath the sun

and in the poppy fields.


Her feet are bare and brown.

Her hair is the finest gold.

She talks to the sky and laughs at the rain

and looks for hands to hold.


She dances with the dandelions.

Dew drops are in her eyes.

And when she grows weary late in the day,

 her daddy sings her lullabies.
