The lanky schoolgirl from over-the-road ...

The lanky schoolgirl from over-the-road

arrives with her shy, sweet smile,

her good manners and her capability,

to work an hour in my garden.

Remembering myself at 13,

I wonder about her dreams,

and what may be a vivid inner life – 

but don’t intrude by asking.
