The Mystery of…

Sickly white hands

Pale grey eyes

As innocent as a mockingbird 

Watched by family

Kept inside

Quiet, shy and lonely

No mom, no dad

Just an older brother to spend the passing time with

Scout and Jem

Saved their lives

From a drunk old man seeking revenge

Left gifts in the tree

Got none in return 

A selfless act of kindness

His name was Mr. Arthur

But they called him Boo Radley
