WOW

Gingerly grasping
crinkly red cellophane
round cheese wrapping,
raising it to chapped lips,
hushed WOW Look at THIS, mama!
Can I KEEP this?
Yes, WOW baby--
You can keep it.

Ella asked the Real Toads to write a poem about wow!

  7. Oh, this is precious, Marian. Even I remember how exciting it was to view the world through a colourful toffee wrapper.

  10. This is lovely--that childlike sense of WOW at the simple things in our world. A treasure in itself.

  12. Felix doesn't like the cheeses, but he always covets the wrappers, even the wax if I'd let him.
    It usually irritates me, but you've made me reconsider...
