Too Soon?

I told her “If you want to read
we could use some words that set the mood.”
“Okay” she said, “and anyway
tonight’s your night to choose.”

So I combed the shelves and selected a tome.
She lit a candle and bombarded the room.
“One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.”
She laughed, room lightened, I did too.

 

(We did end up reading Dr. Seuss, though not for long).
