My Baby

Red head, born with blonde, yellow like the sun,

And eyes blue-grey, oceanic, with  a

Russet fleck in your left iris,

A speckle of your dad.

 

Rosebud lips, dress your face, they play above

A delicate chin. Oh! And your thin skin

Pearl onion white, freckles in the

Summer light. My princess!

 

She’s a queen now, nearly nineteen–

But forever  and ever a sweet babe to me.
