T is for Tired

T is for Tired, worn completely out,
Mama Ruby drifts off in her chair.
After tending to little ones all day,
Blessed sleep knits up the raveled sleeve of care.

P is for Pink

P is for Pink, all sugar and spice,
A silly indulgance of the heart,
But when the day will be less than nice,
A little girl moment helps at the start.

And btw – did I say pink?

L is for Letter

L is for Letter, and while Ruby read,
Little bear asked, “Who sends snail mail, today?”
“It’s from one of my cousins,” Ruby said,
“She’s packed all her things and is coming to stay!”
