something bright inside

there is something bright inside
quietly shifting its weight from foot to foot,

perhaps you don’t see it because
it only has one leg at a time
and feels tipsy in the wind

gently, I ask you, gently
sit slowly with me and listen
to the tap tap tapping of shy feet

perhaps if we are tender
if we are careful and smiling
we shall find ourselves with a new
bright companion
