Day 10

A Spell to Start Again

Written by Sara McQueen

What will we open tomorrow?
When the long wait is over,
We long to return
To the first.

It’s a magical time -
Grownups say

So perhaps a little spell
Or a wish
Would do the trick?

Push shut the windows
Like tightly closed eyelids.

Wait…

and wish

When eyes open
All closed (like before)
These windows wait
To be opened
Once more.
