spelling test

this morning the sky was brightest blue
blue as a child's eye reflected on the sea
when after a period of pleading
                      they run to get ice cream

after laying in late we ate toast
hot from the toaster
                       with watery butter
that ran to our cuffs
before stepping into the morning warmth

spelling test today
                     last day of the week
cribbing 'excitedly'- making sure
you keep the 'c' behind the kiss
three times and each time correct

The Blue Book
