Little Girls

Long green bean legs and knobby knees

Pink tutu’s bobbing against shapeless thighs

Running and dancing, stopping to twirl

Wide eyed wonder in young girl’s eyes

Dimples in cheeks, she has two, you have one

Big tooth smiles, three teeth gone

See whose legs can faster run

Chasing each other across the lawn

Practicing dance moves they’ve created

Showing off gymnastic tricks

Cartwheels, handstands attempting splits

She can do them now, they’re all elated

Sisters and cousins creating bonds

Holding hands, heartfelt hugs

Innocent moments, good time sharing

Secret smiles and chasing fairies
