"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you"
-Dr. Seuss


Awakened by peppermint roses
With sparkling lemondrop dew
Bathing in watermelon sunrise
And a coconut kiss or two

Mother gently rises
From her bed of strawberry seeds
Humming a tune of vanilla
In a dress of cinnamon reeds

She drapes us in daffodil petals
Wraps juniper sprigs in our hair
Feeds us bowls of sugarmilk pudding
Gives coconut kisses with care

We pack up our silver-leaf satchels
Prepare for the journey ahead
Take one last look at the sweet-blossom trees
At our mother with cheeks rosy red

She let us bloom into flowers
Now sets us into the free
But not without her honey-filled heart
And a coconut kiss just for me
