Milk Teeth Miracles - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

my daughter
asks when we are out
can we visit

the toy shop
and oh the joy
in her eyes

with a yes reply

as she scans
all assembled boxes
latest arrivals

desire to possess
is in her heart
but she will not

ask only dream
appreciate
time of viewing

my daughter
would rather
I bought her

the latest
beautiful Barbie doll
complete

with accessories
selection of beautiful dresses
beautiful in boxes

rather
than I soft
blow

precious
wisdom seeds
to the winds

my daughter
plans to save up
all her money

magical gift money
the tooth fairy
in soft night love

leaves under
her pillow
for next lost

tooth ivory
wonder
milk teeth

gaps
smile up
grow

each tooth
under middle
of her pillow

firmly
sleep
guarded

joy
morning
showing

crisp
new mint
gift

money
waiting
smiling
her plan
to magic money
save up

to purchase
her dream doll
love seed sows

teases
pleases
maturity

teaches
while I prepare
leaving

to hang up quill
to fill the till
to shower dreams
