A Carpet of Clover – v3

In this small space
something about the soil
easy to measure, to see,
a spare-bedroom-sized place
between the maple tree
and the front shrub,
just beyond, in front of
our bright dandelion patch

a carpet of white clover
shimmering, swaying
in the June breeze
new blooms bursting
ready for the harvest
of her little hands,
their shrieks of joy,
and giggles of wonder
