About Angelica Anne


About Angelica Anne

Careful now…she’s fragile.
Give her no cause for fear.
A voice too loud will startle her
…too hushed, and you’re a blur.
Offer her soft…warm cookies.
Place a length of satin ribbon
…in her quiet hands.
Set a vase of lilacs where the sun
…will find their scent.
Careful now…she’s fragile.
Don’t frighten her to death.
