Freckled – quadrille for dVerse

Oh, all the lovely freckled things
the speckled things,
the thrush’s breast
and the trout’s belly
and the blue egg
nestled in mud and feathers
and your sweet face
and the sunlight on the water
and the dancing shadows of the leaves.

A quadrille for Mish at dVerse. The word is “freckle”.
