card play on a wintery day
"Mommy what is the one with the A on it again?"
"It is an Ace. Having a Daughter like you is ace."

52 cards in a deck to build a house.
Maisie Jean is making a mansion.

"It is an Ace. Having a Daughter like you is ace."
Maisie's hands and imagination slowly, gently stack cards.
Nine feet high and 14 feet wide, numbered faces out.
Building the biggest card house in all England.

52 cards in a deck to build a house.
Ace through King arranged in suits; red and black,
hearts, diamonds, clovers, and spades
arranged into a country place for Maisie and mom.

Maisie Jean is making a mansion
for her and mom to hide in and snuggle,
a day off from school and work to be remembered
within these card-stock walls forever.
