For Gabrielle, fourth birthday


dear gabrielle
i hope you always do well
give joy to your mom
grand-mom and grand-pop
others too
cheer yourself
and them all up
enjoy your life
find early what you love to do
excel and achieve
fantastic ideas up your sleeve

always believe in mystery
and possibility
a world you don't necessarily see

be true to yourself and love
be brave!
have nerve
with all your talents - enjoyably serve

live up to your name
coincidentally ascribed
like a certain angel - the same
invisible power, invisible love
human angel you, gentle dove

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
