Girl Child - Poem by jerry hughes

From mewling and puking,
nappy wetting and fouling,
to standing and demanding.
This miracle of procreation
beautiful in construction,
carries within her
the beginning, and the end.

    Your Shakespearean first words summons a poem which is the essence of Jerry Hughes - brief, unequivocal and with an ocean of wisdom in the last line. Very, very good. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

    Don't forget, from standing and demanding to growing, learning and conquering. Lovely work Jerry, from a Girl Child herself. Xx (Report) Reply
