Tired Girls 

They’d play silly games,

Their eyes shining,

Knees scratched from 

A day in the sand box.

Smiles for everyone 

And lo, some more.

Tired girls, happy 

For they loved.

Tag and hide and seek,

Duck duck goose.

Shouts of glee and 

Screams — “You’re it!”

Picnics with ice cream,

Pizza and barbecue.

Tired girls, happy 

For they loved. 
Backyard games and 

Hysterical laughter;

Whispered promises:

“I won’t tell anyone.” 

And then telling 

Everyone by mistake. 

Tired girls, happy 

For they loved. 
Broken legs, sighs,

Sweat and tears;

Talking about 

Everything and nothing.

Easter egg hunts,

Drive in movies.

Tired girls, happy 

For they loved. 
Visits to the library,

Smelling the books. 

Playing with magnets

And marbles and stones:

“Here, catch this! Oh no!

I didn’t mean to hurt you!”

Tired girls, happy 

For they loved.
