She

Today
The little girl with skipping rope and sand pail
Peeks out from beneath

Her salt-and-pepper hair
And loose folds of skin

Today
There are giggles in her throat
Roses on her cheeks
And words rushing out
Clamouring to get free

Today
She has discovered
That her soul has wings
Her heart is on fire
And the world is hers for the conquering
