  • The Moon's the North Wind's cookie

    He bites it, day by day

    Until there's but a rim of scraps

    That crumble all away.

    The South Wind is the baker

    He kneads clouds in his den,

    And bakes a crisp new moon that ...

    greedy…. North.... Wind ….eats….again!

    ---“What the Little Girl Said"
