Viva La Pippi

She’s been laying in the grass eating Popsicles all day
her tongue has turned a lovely shade of purple
by the way

The clouds that pass by are any number of things
royalties galore
and dreams with wings

And most days now she takes her elfin friend
into town to see a picture show again

She will not be bothered
by the bothersomes of life
she is the new Pippi Longstocking
of mother’s and wives

Hey Pippi 1, I like this a lot.

I am touched that I may have inspired this poem. I will print it out and treasure it forever and someday pass it onto my elfin friend and tell her that her aunty wrote it about her and I.

By the way, my tongue is stained red-I like cherry popsicles best.
