To Apple Blossom on her 90th

 Whimsical Mother


Only the most whimsical of mothers

would provide

a child size home

to be adults inside.

We'd enter the kitchen

with it's grown up stove, 

noticing the sunshine

slanting through curtains

on the breakfast alcove. 

Berta and I 

would sit, sipping tea,

until Lady, 

wagging her tail, 

would say hi. 

We would greet her at the door, 

then move to the living room

with generous cushions

on the floor,

with framed artwork

hanging on papered walls,

we'd discuss 

mature concerns.

Precious--I love it! I never had the little house, but my Mom must have been related to yours for the play areas she fixed for us.
Happy 90th birthday to your Apple Blossom--and many more!
