Stillness and Mischief

She runs around curtains
And plays with mango juice
Her father braids her hair and hopes she would sit still
"Soon, the rains will be here"
"I know! Then I will jump in puddles"
"There is mango on your clothes"
"In rains, the earth will decorate my dresses"
"Come, sit here for a story"
"Say, I can hear and play with the wind"
"You are the wind"
She runs around curtains
Stains clothes
And spends an afternoon in warmth
He wishes stillness
But revels in her four year old mischief
