TWINSHIP: A BLESSING AND A CURSE

MORE THAN ONE

Most times two is more than one:

More giggles, laughs

And MUCH more fun.

But mathematics

Can prove wrong

And two can make a day seem long

With turns to rake and compromises

And never any real surprises.

Sometimes, sometimes – I think I’d like

My twin to take a long, long hike

Or ride away upon her bike

And leave me by myself a day,

Until that feeling goes away.

Poem quoted in  Take Two! A Celebration of Twins by J.P. Lewis and Jane Yolen
