This is so clever, Ann. I particularly like the way you have structured the verse. The breaks in the lines give an air of breathlessness – reminding me of my child self bursting (or "tearing-in") through the flyscreen door at home on hot summer evenings, and being scolded by parents who were afraid I would let in mozzies. And of course, I recall all too painfully the fact that sometimes such exuberant entry resulted in a torn screen, and ended in "tears". Thank you for the memories!
