Ringlets and Coattails

Ringlets subdue the mighty
And they fall
They always fall
Heads first
And then the hearts
And I am amazed
Stunned really
By the ease at which they become
The peaceful animals of the wild
For their heads no longer collide
And civility runs very high.

It is the essence of our world
The simplicity of life overwrought with unnecessary chaos
I hold to the park bench
For hours at a time
Tolerating the piercing screams
From the ringlets as they pass by
They giggle and twirl
In their lace and fake pearls
Watching the mighty subdued
Will soon become a lifelong pursuit
The innocence of age
Marked by ringlets and coattails
Brings me peace
And I smile
Watching life again renewed.
