A child

She remembered Alice’s face,

The Mad Hatter’s grace.

Queenie’s red chair,

‘Off with her head’ stare.

Fluffy White Rabbit, always late,

How easy it was to hate.

Hopscotch chalk,

An early morning walk.

Taught ‘nice’ was an insult,

Believing many things were her fault.

Blue bubbles in her brother’s room,

Indy and the Temple of Doom.

Playing Wendy beneath the table,

Schooled in every Aesop fable.

A nasty temper,

Impersonating Thumper.

Wishes of running away,

A child moulded from clay.
