This children's book focuses on a young girl and her weariness over a long, dreary winter. She longs to see the bright greens and yellows of spring, dotting fields of beautiful flowers. Follow Ivy as the season changes to spring, aided by the words of the author and famous poets.
Smile bright like sunlight Since birth, you've held me with love I adore you, Mom
You keep showing me kindness after kindness, A bittersweet realization that more Will never be within my reach The kindness that glimmers In your bright eyes and serene smile, Is really just a hidden cruelty
Staring in the mirror, Sunken eyes, hollow smile. Gazing ahead, Only a ghost looks back.
So, with a small, but knowing smile, The girl always thinks to herself, "It's okay, you don't have to love me."
