my meg has a soft, mushy side a mile wide. you might not know it to watch her - if she were a young man in the elizabethan era i would probably say she comes across a bit rakish! :) but her charm and flamboyance notwithstanding, there is, just under the surface, the most gloriously mushy & sentimental heart. all that to say that she wrote a book last night, and i would like to publish it here for your delight. my only regret is that you will not be able to see the illustrations. they are fantastic - you'll have to take me at my word. (also, i have corrected spelling for your ease of reading, but the misspellings are charming!)

"the love book" - by meg mulder

there once was love, but it didn't have a place to go
because a boy threw it out.

the reason he threw it out was because he loved a girl
but didn't want her to know
so he threw it out.

but the love wanted to Love, and not to shrink
so he grew instead

he grew sooooo much he did not fit in anyone
'cause they did not love enough

but one time....

love found a person to fit in!


i want love back!
said the boy.
soooo... his parents gave him love.

they lived happily ever after.
the end.

That is SO adorable! What a lovely, creative girl. I think that boy had better hurry up and start showing her some love! She's been very patient!
