"The difficulty of literature is not to write, but to write what you mean; not to affect your reader, but to affect him precisely as you wish." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

The First Mosquito of Spring

A familiar faint whine past the ear
Told us we had an unwelcome guest.
Now the children can't sleep for their fear
They'll be snacked on all night while they rest.

~ Tamary Shoemaker
(From a prompt at Poetic Asides to write a poem about a visitor.)
