What Can the Little Lassie Do?

By Peniel Gifted

She’s like a mini mouse,
Pining for mother’s fur—
Spindly, a traveling light.

In cottage of sickly ceilings
Breathing in through the hours scribbled
Images, muttering deep words her
Mushy father could only just descry.

Hampered in ennui cages,
Tell me—what can the little Lassie do,
With her might so slight?
