We burst
into
Sound of Music,
climbing stairs of
silliness with loud, clumsy feet.
Pinged by echo on rebound
you collapse in giggles
and catch my ankle
so that we tumble
all the way
down and
when we roll
over that
first
step,
the one
that got us
started, we peel laughter
another time and again until
our stomaches scream and heave.
We lie silent
grinning twinkles.
Ah, I love you.
