They Loved Paperclips by Lisa Jarnot

THEY LOVED PAPERCLIPS (from Black Dog Songs)
by Lisa Jarnot

They loved harmony they loved ant hills they loved food and cookies and harpoons they loved the sound of laces of the shoes they loved the snow on Thursday in the rain and when they met they loved that too and igloos and the trees and things to mail and chlorine and they loved the towels for the beach and hot dogs and the pool and also when the wind rose up they loved the ceiling and the tide and then they loved the sky.
