Aww, this is so sweet, I felt it was like one of the little verses on cards, perhaps a mother and child occasion card!
I love the detail of the straw angel, and how we can see how it was made, but I think what makes this poem so special is that it highlights the importance of a gift that has been made, it is not the worth of the material, but the worth of time that went into it.
You show in this poem that the gift you look at, not only is lovely, but you can also remember every expression on the child's face as they made it, and then when they handed it over.
That is what makes this poem so touching.
Very special <3
I remember this piece....I remember reading it and laughing as I just did...One day I'll be able to write poems like this...but until then I'll just keep coming back to this one because it's so amazing!!! It really does fill me with joy!!! :)
