The Tooth Fairy, by Jonathan Reid.
It is a pearl of great price,
My daughter's tooth.
It has danced in the aisles of her utterance
And upheld the vaults of her breath.
It has prepared the bread that sustains her
And stood vigil by her bedded tongue.
It has put on whiteness for her Sunday smile
And champed at small delays.
Pale vestal, though your temple hours are run,
God's work within the sanctuary goes on.
