Scout

 

The essence of childhood
trudges through woods. 
Encumbered yet steadfast,
she stumbles on bravely,
resolutely scouting the
darkness, encased within a ham,
banging into trees. 
All children that ever were, she is. 
We ache for her and see ourselves
and the best we can hope for
is that our costumes
have peripheral vision.
