Hay Fever

She’d like to leap
into the void
but she’s afraid,
recalls other leaps –
the drop from the hayloft window
into prickly pillows,
golden motes,
eyes streaming hay histamines.
She felt her way up the ladder
stumbled over slippery bales
to the top once more,
then leapt into
the scream
Oh, to be that kid again,
bringing on hay fever.

—Dianne Hicks Morrow, from Long Reach Home, Acorn, 2002. Dianne is also the author of Fixing up the Farmhouse: Forty Years of Living, Loving, and Lamenting, Acorn, 2015, and What Really Happened Is This, winner of the 2012 PEI Book Award.
