I guess most of my Christmas presents will be of the "cheap" kind; here's a poem I've written for my sister. I'm not sure if it's done though, might add another stanza :)

My sis, the smiling tigress

You're striding proudly down the street,
Your chin held high, your eyes ahead.
Whatever obstacle you meet,
Is ground beneath your rhythmic tread.

"Now, who's that girl right over there?
I've never seen her likes before!"
The fellows wonder as they stare,
Their simple minds left wanting more.

"The luckless hounds" I think aloud,
You smile and give your skirt a spin,
For here's a girl who kills the crowd;
My sis, the source of male chagrin!

I love you though and dearly so,
And pity he who makes you cry;
Impending Doom of Geeky Bro
Will teach the sod just how to fly!

A brother who's very proud of his pretty and bright sister. Everyone would likea protector like that! This should make her very happy to have you for her brother, Thomas!

This makes me wish for another brother ;) Splendid!

The couple of changes were fine and the poem couldn't be much better. You pulled it off just fine, schlinks! Can tell you I'd've been real proud to get a poem like that from my bro at any age!


Nothing is sweeter than a protective big (?) brother! What a lucky sister to be so admired and well protected by her brother who really lets his light shine here! He thinks the world of his sister, that's carved out in stone.
