A MINUTE AFTER MIDNIGHT

  A MINUTE AFTER MIDNIGHT

The world is dressing already
For a day of loveliness.

New dreams poised to take over
From all the old dreams
Frayed at the edges.

Hope patching the tattered pieces
Until you can’t even see the join.

Lucy Mangan – The Guardian  Online  – Books for children
to read at this difficult time, include my ‘PRIVATE-KEEP OUT!’
where she says ‘..a book that has kept me laughing from the age
of ten and throughout the three and a half decades since..’  It would
give me great happiness to know that, through all the current
difficulties, my book still makes children laugh.
