[A small tribute to my new niece...]


Casey Joy
7 May 2000

You first came to be as a sweet whisper
in your mother’s soul
your father, though a person complete
realized you and became whole.

A promise you were, a thought wished
came to be from your parents’ kiss.

Ne’er for a moment, did either one imagine
just how precious you’d be, in your fashion;
whole and healthy you came to be
a mere presence, you created revelry.

A promise you were, a thought wished
came to be from your parents’ kiss.

Now know you, in your loving heart
the joy your precious name imparts;
into love, with love, your parents’ eyes shine
May God Bless thee, May God bless thine.

Love,

Auntie

Denise, she is but five days old
her photo will be as dear as gold,
thank you much for your comments, dear;
I only wish she were in my arms here!

This one is pure gold, sunshine. I bet your very young niece would say something like..

O my sunshine auntie, so dear,
Thank you for your words so glittering,
Oh, a lot for me you do care,
A lovely poetess you are a bard, ever so shining...


Regards, sudhir



 Life is like a painting,
That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.
