One thing leads to another

Beginning middle end.

That's a less-than-one-minute poem that COULD have been (but isn't) in the forthcoming anthology ONE MINUTE TILL BEDTIME, edited by Children's Poet Laureate Kenn Nesbitt. Instead a different tiny poem by me is included, along with many more "60-second poems to send you off to sleep."
I just love the cover illustration by Christoph Niemann, and I can't wait to see what other poems by our Poetry Friday friends are included. It comes out November 1 from Little Brown, just in time for winter gift-giving!
The Poetry Friday round-up is with Margaret at Reflections on the Teche.
