14. Ladybird

14-ladybird

Easy to spot, the scarlet and the black, and your dots matching the tiny spores of mould we can’t quite reach to clean. I wonder what you are doing, coming to see us indoors. Perhaps you have come to read with us, like the ladybirds of my childhood, now being revisited, or perhaps you are the refugee from a house fire, or maybe this is simply a flying visit, and my Lady will pick up her skirts and petticoats, and remind us that even the round may have their assumption day.
