6 May: I Do Believe I Do Believe

hen and rooster

I remember as a child
believing that when I could read

I’d know lots of stuff,
and I’d know truth when I saw it,

but there were few facts
in Henny Penny or
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

and so I was left to believe
mostly in myself.

    1. It was originally my mother’s book, and it was agreed that the first of us kids to have grandchildren would inherit the book from her. I have the book.
