Hillsboro, OR
Baby blanket, Childhood

Together we flew
from the Earth to the Stars
We dipped and we drifted
We soared and we spun
We fought the good fight
The battle was won!
Strange worlds we did see
with dirt that was red
and oceans of green
Spooked by the faces
of Martians unseen.
With our adventures complete
We’d settle to our sleep
It kept me warm
and I held it tight
and Mom would come in
and wish us goodnight.

This was a beloved blanket of a little boy with a big imagination.
