Bronwen loves to enjoy literature and write poetry; some are in her book, 'Dithyrambles', available in her online bookstore.

One Year Old
One Year Old

Tiny, wee

Amanda B

Lies on my knee

And smiles at me.


Born in a hurry

She caused such a flurry,

Made the nurses scurry,

But for her no worry.


Source

Home in ten days

Instead of fourteen.

See big sister gaze,

See proud father lean.


Her little pink lips

Form a perfect O,

Eager for sips,

Knows where to go.


I'd knitted pink shawl,

Pink dress and the lot,

Although in those days

Her sex we knew not.


Our 'coconut ice'

Had everything nice.

We prayed that she'd grow

Heavenly Father to know.


Not easy to raise

Many foods she would scorn,

We tried many ways,

Our hearts often torn.


But at last she was grown

With a mind of her own,

Eager to go,

The world to know.


With our blessing see

Her departed, fancy free.

Sweet young lady she,

Amanda B.

      Oh, how lovely! I doubt it, though. Every Mother makes mistakes that are easy enough to see when looking back but not at the time. Yes, she is lovely and a good friend now, too.

      It certainly is you! My beautiful Amanda B! Thank you for visiting and reading. Are you going to join hubpages, too? It's fun and actually pays a very small amount.

      Truly awesome and beautiful my friend.

      Also so much truth.

      As much as we would like to reign in our children and keep them from harm forevermore;this is not possible;they have to venture and learn from their mistakes;this is the way of the world.

      Take care my friend and have a wonderful day.

      Eddy.

      Sweet. It is most precious as Khalil Gibran has said that we parents give our offspring the freedom to reign free on their own!
