Comfort Them with Stories

Comfort Them with Stories

Comfort them with stories
of once upon a time
where wicked witches
melt in water
and runaways
find happiness.

Lull them with softer lullabies
of babies rocking in the trees
where breezes there are gentle
and infants do not fall.

Riddle them a rhyme
where a poor woman
living in a shoe
with many needy children
can feed and watch them all.

Use caring enchantments
to shield them for a time
for dangers in non-fiction
will soon enough appear.

Bonnie Marshall
