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 GAYLE 


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.
