I think this will be the final pre-submission revision ... but one never knows.

Fingers, A Poem for Kimberly

My heart leapt for you long had I waited,

for a gift of divine perfection would you mine be.

In awe of your tapered fingers I marveled,

when mine eyes first beheld thee.

by side we stood rinsing dishes,

Our moment of you and me always I’ll cherish.

Mom fashioned twin braids for you with blue ribbon

hold on tightly lest our memories perish.

butterfly like none other fluttered by me  

Sparkling pixies dancing on toe shoe,

Tiny ballerinas with balloons and candy

Nary an eye could see through tear drops of dew.

gasped when she curtsied, my breath nearly stolen.

Such precious moments number so few.

My heart did break though mend it did quickly.

I shan’t ever grow weary of loving you.

Your delicate grace will forever me inspire,

I gaze at how the  shadow yet lingers ...

of loving you I shall never tire.

Are there any lovelier than my butterfly's fingers?

Alan D. Busch

Dear Alan,

I personally think this is good to go now and doesn't need any more revisions. It's lovely just the way it is.

all my best,
