- a love sonnet -
September 4th 2006
Daisy! How beautiful in the morning:
You awoke, shone and opened up to greet
Us in the early hours, before dawning;
A miracle for everyone to meet.
With love we welcome you, bundle of joy,
And laughing, happy smiles, thoughts from the heart;
The happiest words we've tried to employ.
Waking from cosy slumbers - now apart -
Your searching eyes are watching our faces
Quietly wondering who we are and why
So many cuddles and embraces;
But you respond with murmurs soft - and sigh.
How great the joy you've brought for us to share;
Your life will flower, Daisy, everywhere.
