birthday poem

Hugh McCrae is (was) an Australian writer I hadn't hear of until now. Sorry, Hugh. And Happy Birthday!

Following the Trail of Crumbs

Finding a recently emptied cookie jar
I didn't wander all too far
and discovered
She was all of five months past three
and had a face covered with chocolate and glee.
But when I inquired
about what transpired
She looked on me with sadder eyes than Death,
And answered,
I confeth."
