Casita con risa


In another life

My name is Spanish and

I am called Casita.

The warmth of my hearth

gathers giggles that grow to

full belly laughter.

I am known for my hugs.

All the kids swarm every door

arms flying open.

Endless encircling embracing

Brazos abiertos abrazos

Mi nombré es

Casita con risa de cariño y amor.

I am

Little house of laughter with warmth and love.
