Sadie’s Vacation

Sadie took some sweet time

To visit every space

She had fit into when she was small

And as she crawled into each one of them

She told herself

How her life had turned out

That as she had grown tall

Her heart had known how to change

(In place of that warm ache

Had grown softness like butter)

And then almost as if Sadie were her own mother

She lay her fingers to her cheeks

And felt the love pour over her own shoulders.
