This the first poem I ever wrote. At 22, I thought giving birth to this wonderful baby was a miracle. Since her brother's died from Muscular Dystrophy,she is my only child and at 52, she is still my miracle. She and her two daughters, my granddaughters, of whom I often write, are all miracles as far as I am concerned.


My Iris Gale is quite a girl.

For her each night I knit and purl,

And sit and wonder with furrowed brow,

If it is possible, and why and how.


Her little form stirs in my heart

A love that words cannot impart.

The thought of her makes my heart leap.

I can't believe she's mine to keep.


She has a pert little turned up nose,

With a darling mouth like a pink tea rose.

And when she smiles her face lights up

Like the morning sun on a buttercup.


Then when into her room I creep

To watch as she smiles in her sleep,

I know that nothing can replace

The love I feel for my angel face.


Yes, Iris Gale is quite a girl

For her each night I knit and purl,

And sit and wonder with furrowed brow,

If it is possible and why and how.
