Blue Monday: Is There a Mouse in the House?

Photobucket
An abandoned house, Zacatecas, México.
 


In a tiny little house
Lived a tiny little mouse
And the mouse didn’t have a crumb to eat.
 
So she made herself a plan
To bake cookies and a flan
’Cause a mouse (as we know) likes food that’s sweet!

Midsummer evening—
the city’s ancient houses
seem to be ablaze.

Does she know?

Photobucket
A wedding at Ex-Convento de Guadalupe, Guadalupe, Zacatecas, México
 


Does she know, the happy bride,
That sorrow comes her way?
Does she know her firstborn son
Will sometimes go astray?
 
Nestled safe within her womb
The child begins to grow;
But of pangs that are to come
How little does she know!

Where

Photobucket

Where, O where, has my little boy gone?
Where, O where, can he be?
I’ve looked for him high, I’ve looked for him low,
I’ve looked for him up in a tree!
 
The moment I find him, what should I do?
(I fear the search will be long.)
The thing every other mother would do:
Love him and sing him a song.

After seven frosts,
a smile transcending seasons
warms the coldest heart.

The dreamer’s front door
opens of its own accord—
a journey begins.
