"Mittens" by Poetry Chick


Strapped tight to the hand
covering bare skin,
children throw them about 

once they've reached 
the white kingdom 
beyond the doorstep.

Bending,stretching,creases form
but it doesn't matter, 
they hold their place, wet but firm.

Young children hopping about
jackets flying, faces burnt 
with a red velvet smile

When the day is done, 
they will be placed 
high to dry

Preparing for 
their next adventure
