Best Poem of Denise James

My Daughter / My Changeling

Who crept soft among mine
With envious delight,
To rob me of preciousness
As if over-night?

How slowly I awakened,
From my blissful bed,
To find my child gone away;
A changeling in her stead -

Bright eyes turned to angry stares
No more laughing innocence
What was once solicited,
This being stoically resents

Pray keep me strong; accepting,
Of this challenging changeling, who
If I frighten her away from me
She takes my baby, too

(And sorrowfully I see
For now we won't agree,
Though I'm a changeling,
too)
