30/30 for April 5th a day late 


It was me who started the egg hunt.

It is my tradition.
She thinks it is hers,
that she started it for her children.
I know I started it for them 
and she carried on each year
until I had children too.
And now they’re almost too old for it
but we do it just the same 
because it’s a tradition after all.
We fall silent not wanting to argue
because it doesn’t matter who started it.
But it was me who started the egg hunt,
I’m sure.
