Once upon a time
When she was eight,
A fancy yellow party dress
Along with a dresser full
Of new clothes,
Appeared in her dream.

She awoke enchanted
And recounted the story.
Magically and on cue
Mommy quoted
“Thou shalt not covet”

As a grandmother now,
The 8 year old
still has to fight guilt.
There is no hocus pocus
That can be conjured
To break the spell.
