EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

LITTLE GIRL IN A LIGHT BLUE DRESS

Little girl in the light blue dress,

All dressed up and grown,

Running 'midst the dandelions,

Blowing seeds as the leaves are thrown

Here and there and everywhere.

Dreaming seems . . . as she roams

To come easily to this child,

Living in the wild. (Her other home)

Give her an apple to chew on,

Grapes to suck free from the seeds,

Carrots from the garden,

And fl owers . . . some call weeds.

No more doth this little girl need

'Cept a turtle, or maybe two.

Growing up is easy for this fairy

In her lovely, little dress of blue.

Oh what misery awaits this child,

We will never know-

As she was killed -- by a pedophile;

Now she will never grow.

*Go rest in God's bosom,

My own stricken dear,

Though the earth fled from thee,

Thy home is there.

I find you still in the smile

That no cloud can o'ercast,

And in my heart,

Remembering you

Till the very last.

*The author is paying homage to Poet Thomas Moore
