You've been busy again
Planting rose bushes,
Painting tv boxes green,
And stacking crates and shoots
Of all colors and sizes
To make one vibrant town
With blue leaf foot prints,
Yellow rivers, and a real smoke stack.
I always follow you
With my wisps of black and gray
Shadows that catch on fire
And turn into brilliant orange and blue
Leaping up towards the blue fox
And the strong lady lifting dumbbells.
