she asks the bright star

to come closer, pretty please

with breath that fogs glass

         the old window pane rattles

         while a draft shifts a ringlet

    Hi Cyndi - I stopped by to read you delightful poetry this morning, this one being so dear. I've not commented on each because when I comment I have to go through all kinds of hoops to get back to my favorites. Hopefully this will end. love you, Kathy
