Filing System

I stuff sunlight that’s dripped
from daisy petals
in an old jelly jar
to drizzle on my toast
when the air grows cold.

I snatch the thrush’s song
from the morning air,
gently lay each warble
in a shoebox lined
with tissue paper
and fallen feathers.
Such magic
must rest comfortably.

Finally, acorns,
tucked between
the rough stones,
among the grass
rising from the earth
like whiskers,
are tossed with dark sugar,
stored in brown-paper-bags
and placed under rainbows.

Perhaps, the leprechauns
will abandon their gold
for kinder treasures.
