my daughter is very delicate
fragile, sensitive, defeated
yet daily I dip into
my heart’s desire for dreams

to detail her daring escape

defeating delicate decline

to ride a unicorn over the fields
flying free without a care
leaving behind her insipid decline
oh my, how can I get her there
with great skill, a bribe, devotion!

#12. Use these words in a poem: delicate, daughter, detail, defeated, daily, dip + puente
