RIP Margaret Mahy
by Clayton Wehner - July 27th, 2012
I rode upon a unicorn,
When boys put tadpoles in their jars
I overflowed my tin with stars
Because I sing to see the sun
The little children point and run.
Because I set the caged birds free
The people close their doors to me.
Goodbye, goodbye, you world of men-
I shall not visit you again.
The Word Witch: The Magical Verse of Margaret Mahy
