One Single Impression: Welcoming


A planned child she was
month early conceived
practice run made good
July's child we made

Expecting a boy
we named him Festus
loved him sight unseen
every day we cooed

Seven scheduled time
hospital to come
to meet him that day
impression we make

Festus came okay
our little he was
a cute little she
home for her we made

Three score years have passed
cycles do repeat
for him her and us
grandson now she makes

welcome world we say

The same goes for my poetry attempts (don't know how, but I enjoy it!).

The circle of new life (or spiral as I like to envision it) of life. Very sweet.
