Wish for World Peace MAG

By Jennifer T., Gilmanton Iron Works, NH

A soft whistle from the child's mouth is enough
to suffocate the candles and entertain the family.
His sour breath stretches across the frosted terrain
and steals the liveliness from the wax towers.
Aunts and uncles clap and encourage while
another target falls - dripping down the spiral.
