Angels Are Darning Socks In The Sunset

angels are darning socks in the sunset
you can see the ragged holes in the clouds
turn rose to gold

then drift away whole
and they mending the clouds
cannot sing out loud

until Christmas day
so we might as well play
on the swings all winter

and when the ice melts on the slide
and the icicles where they
kissed our roof

wild violets will appear
in the grasses
where our dolls sleep'

blanketed
with snows of the rose petals.
