Doodles & Riddle

On Serena's door lies a riddle:
Welcome traveler!
You've reached road's end
With patch in shirt & shoes to mend.
Your needs I humbly will attend.
But first your fleeting mind you'll lend
Or sit & wait for days on end.
 The clue:
This spells a word. Find the code!
The word is on the mango.

Naturally I found in our fruit bowl a mango full of doodles.  Doodles of words that tickle this child's fancy, including:

She discovered this 45-letter word "pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis" in a book called "WORDPLAY" by Helga Williams. Reminds me of her mastering "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" at age 4. This girl loves her big words!

The answer to the riddle is, as she said, on the mango. Got it yet?
