Sally-Sam ‘silently’ sings in her mind ‘aloud’
when her mama screams: “Sally-Sam!”
But Sally-Sam startled, wide-opens her eyes.
She asks: “Mama, did you read my mind?”
Sally-Sam is six, skinny, and sweet.
She swirls with her favorite flowery skirt, legs crossing in twirls,
with shoulders sassily scintillating a shrug.
her mama replies, “come here, silly girl!”
But Sally-Sam still in shock stays in her spot.
Unsound, still silently singing her song,
she asks again, “mama, can you read my mind?”
Her mama says, “Sally-Sam!”
And Sally-Sam giggling and with a big smile says,
“Mama! How do you know my song?”
haha! See how the sweet silly sagacious girl
enjoys messing up with her mom.
