Spreading a Smile

by cricketjeff on August 12, 2010.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved


Another pretty face that will beguile
A sparkle in her loving parents eyes
And author of her doting Grandma’s sighs
Here’s Catherine Ann arrived to spread a smile

From nose to toes a paragon of style
I’m sure she’ll charm the birds down from the trees
One symptom of the happiest disease
Is Catherine Ann who’s here to spread a smile

They may not get much sleep for quite a while
And as she grows she’ll put them to the test
A parent’s life is never full of rest
But Catherine Ann will still cause them to smile

A very pretty face that will beguile
Here’s Catherine Ann arrived to spread a smile

Author notes

Ceridwen’s Soul is rather pleased to announce she’s a Granny!

Catherine Ann arrived at 3pm today weighing in at 7lb 3oz. Jem aims to have her writing sonnets by Christmas.

An echo sonnet.
