Whatever Happened to the Laundry Lady?

by Thomas Davis
a children’s poem written when Sonja and Mary were young

After the stars were all hung out,
Some wet and some half dry,
Rain dripped down from heaven’s black
And cleaned the blue into the sky.

Then the laundry woman left
And let the stars grow dry and cold,
Shining, flapping in the sky,
Becoming stars instead of clothes.
