between heather and grass
it glows and grows
the end of treatment bells
for all the children

This poem is dedicated to all the children with serious illness and their families.
The second line in this tanka later became the title of our second book.
Wishing you all a blessed Thursday,
with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
