Child of Wands

Too young to be afraid, she was often there to see things others didn’t want to be true. Nor was there anyone to teach her who should be her enemy or what she ought not to do. By now it is far too late to go after her, as she scampers unscathed over smoking coals and embers. Her gracious acceptance and empty pockets and sense that nothing needs explanation protects her from what would destroy us.
