Philology VI


spherical delightful miraculous ephemeral onomatopoeic

dip the pipe into the fluid
blow softly

delight upon this child’s face
instant learning

now you
long curving spirals of rainbowed
delicate drifting impish
pop on your face
Glinda in a pink sphere
drifting down magical
over the rainbox
why then oh —

lovely bubbling cuddly wonderment
imaginings myriad splashing in bathtubs
just before bedtime
cotton and coverings
sleepy-eyed kisses
good nights
and sweet dreaming
bubbling off in
cocoons of sweet slumber

bubblegum pretty
amazements by millions
trip down to fairyland
sing me of
