Said a woman, worrying of her clothes.
On the front porch, on strings, unprotected from the weather,
they were hanging.
Said a child to his mother,
earning a knowing smile from his father.
Then the three of them got up and to the kitchen they bound,
enjoying hot chocolate accompanied by the “pitter-patter” sound.

If to dance in it you’re afraid or bold.
We all mutter it from time to time again,
as if welcoming a familiar foe or a friend.
