blessings (to the fourth degree)

 

a precious girl gifted by God above

another sister multiplies the love

her name is biblical, Anna Noel 

a coo that’s softer, sweeter than a dove

 

her liquid eyes deeper than sky of blue

she follows and reflects emotions true

with roundly curving cheeks and hair so fair

dear granddaughter, we’re all in love with you!

 

 


A rubaiyat of iambic pentameter with stanzas of 4 lines, rhyme scheme: AABA, and linked to dVerse Poets where Frank is hosting tonight. logo-napowrimo

if angels gave birth

FullSizeRender

if angels gave birth

their offspring would

be cherubic with…

 

round rosebud cheeks

innocently wise eyes

beguiling half smiles

petal-soft scented skin

miniature untried wings

slippery hot-pink halo

and a kissable bald pate

 

….almost as perfect

as our granddaughter,

Elon LaShay, loved by God.

 

graced by a girl

 

sweet little girl in lavender and pink
flashes a smile that charms her grandpa’s heart
petite and quick, she runs if you give chase
she hugs and kisses teddy bear named pooh
then plays toy tractors just like all the boys
her hair is long enough for two pigtails
if she will sit for mom to comb and tie
she pulls out every book from grandma’s shelf
opens each one and turns a page to read
if weather’s warm, let’s go for wagon ride
barn kitten jumps inside to come along
our happy farm girl laughs, waving her hands!
