For Squirrel.


i kissed a button nose today
and got a squeal of glee
i held a tiny hand and felt
it hanging on to me

i played the ribs with unrivaled skill
musical laughter chimed
i wrapped my arms around my world
thankful and sublime

i looked into her little eyes
she gazed into my soul
never had i known delight
until i took this role

now i often ask myself
how can this miracle be?
she came into my life and then
she made a mom of me

Very enjoyable from start to finish. The first stanza is especially good.

Ah yes, I see it, feel it, and remember it (with mine). Superbly constructed, takes me through each stage of the emotions of delight the moment is with your little one. This is so happy and filled with love it lifts hearts without effort. Love it :)

Nicely conceived and well crafted!

It's rare these days to read such staggeringly optimistic and jubilant poetry. It's like a dose of vitamins and minerals. :)

Thank you for sharing this wonderful experience. You brought both tears to my eyes and a smile when I think how good it was to have them at that stage. I am glad you are enjoying every minute of it. :)

Thanks for giving me a big smile on a nasty winter day. Your little girl, my one-year-old grandson . . . we are both blessed.
