The Length of my Table

A Cracker box, cards and a banana peel ( mine)
A Chapter book with a red plastic ruler for a bookmark
a snapped elastic
a pen with no-more-ink.

multi colored magnets shaped like alien DNA.
plates enshrining after school snack crumbs
Velvet covered pencils and mini lunch containers.

mugs sticky with loved hot chocolate drops.
boots with pink fur trim ( hey! feet off the table!)
a bright blue brush with black curly hairs.

a pencil case full of tiny plastic treasures
agenda's full of teachers' wishes
yo - yo's beside silver candle sticks.

All on my table, all part of my day,
all left by pages from my hearts book.
Chicken pie in the oven and a cousin
for a dinner guest.

We are blessed.
