ribbons undone

I wrote this a couple of weeks ago and found it in my drafts. I will share now.

I have been listening to Tori Amos and I have been spring cleaning all day. I am not awesome at follow through. I start in one spot and then I get distracted and I have several rooms torn up and projects started all over the apartment. Perhaps I am like the little butterfly flitting from flower to flower.

One of the songs I was listening to reminded me of my friend Carrie and her little girl Izzy. I love that kid, she has personality plus! She makes me smile even when I don't want to. I can hear her giggling when I am talking to Carrie on the phone and it cheers up my day.

Ribbons Undone by Tori Amos

Running to spring
It is her time it is her time
Watch her run with ribbons undone

She's a rose in a lily's cloak
She can hide her charms
It is her right there will be time
To chase the sun with ribbons undone

She runs like a fire does
Just picking up daises
Comes in for a landing
A pure flash of lightening
Past alice blue blossoms
You follow her laughter
And then she'll surprise you
Arms filled with lavender

Yes my little pony is growing up fast
She corrects me and says
"You mean a thoroughbred"
A look in her eyes says the battle's beginning
From school she comes home and cries
I don't want to grow up Mom at least not tonight

You're a girl
Rising from a shell
Running through spring
With summer's hand in reach now
It is your time
It is your time
So just run with ribbons undone
It is your time yes my angel
It is your time
So just run with ribbons undone

Run run darlin'
Ribbons undone
