Slender are the
          Base Paths
          Our
          Children
          Race
          Around.
Slender are the
          Willows
          That
          Shade
          Our
          Gurgling
          Creeks.
Slender is our
          Forgiveness
          For
          Apologies
          Unmade.
Slender is the
          Tightrope
          Our
          Health
          Balances
          Upon.
Slender is our
          Patience
          For
         Hindrance
          In
          Commutes.
And Slender are the
          Catwalks
          Our
          Models
          Slink
          Along.
But Wide as the Mississippi at flood is our
          Capacity
          For
          Kindness,
          Generosity,
          And
          Pie.
