Alice Unloved Part two

July and a baseball shatters boarded glass
Finding its way into the lap of the lass
Tommy too young and boyishly brave
Enters the old house to discover her grave
There sit the bones of the little girl
Rocking gently after the baseball whirl
He looked upon her skeleton face
Her tatter clothes barely on place
And on the tiny wrist a bracelet plain
Just five blue letters that spelled her name

Without a thought Tommy spoke out loud
"Alice" he said innocently with a broken smile
The letters on the bracelet seem to lift in a cloud
Rising into the mist while the cracks howl
Alice was free and her letters of blue
Sparkle into the light than into the sun flew
Tommy wet his pants and forgot his quest
He fled for his life but he freed Alice.
