"two little girls"


white spring flowers
open petals
over water
and swimming fish

two little girls
coming to school
exchange shy looks
at each other

one taller, slim,
with smooth paper
in her small hands
creased into cranes

one shorter, round,
with bright scissors
and butterflies
cut from paper

magic twinkles
from their fingers:
same, not the same,
as yet untrained

the breezes blow
the flowers fall
the fish circle
hungry, unfed
