...young and old alike love her. (poetry on the lighter side :o)

I frequently think of Lily as frilly
and sometimes she’s a little bit silly.
Her words are spoken so simple and kind
often ‘fore filtering through her mind.

But Lily has a heart of gold,
no matter the rest of her is so bold.
She cares for friends and foe alike,
certainly never considered a shrike.

She’d prance around with body bare,
and shrug off comments with ne’er a care.
She is free and lithe as a flake of snow
yet sometimes as shrill as a cawing crow.

Yes, Lily is simply frilly and bold,
but this dear babe is only two years old.
