(013) My Baby Cousin (Lovely Zaara) - Poem by Risha Ahmed (12 yrs)

She looks straight into my brown eyes
And creeps so very near
She pulls my hair so very hard
That I say 'oh my dear! '
She crawls about and comes to me
And then she licks my face
Then she sits so quietly and
In her mouth is a lace
She makes noises when she drinks milk
She doesn’t like her food
And when it comes to laughing
She is very very good
In Hindi we call this baby
Ek chamakta taara*
And the baby who we call that
is my cousin Zaara.

A shining star*

(she is one today.25/03/2007)

    much better control of tempo and rhyme and a seemingly higher comfort level with a story that is so familiar to you. Nicely done. (Report)Reply

    Another fabulous write by Risha. I enjoyed the read, it flows nicely, lovely rhyme and the content is wonderful. I'm sure your baby cousin brings you many happy moments. I hope I'm still hear to read some of your published poetry in years to come. You my dear, will be very famous one day, never put your pen away, keep on writing, as I've said before, I'll keep on reading.---Melvina--- (Report)Reply

    Risha, I wish I could have written like this at your age. It is beautiful. I think when you reach my age you will be very famous for writing wonderful things like this. Keep writing my young friend and I will come back often to read them.

    Beautiful poem Risha. Your power of observation is better than any adult. From the thousands of unique moments the baby presents each day you have selected the ones that appealed to you most. We adults would have selected the ones which are most presentable. The natural flow of the poem makes it a great read.
    Excellent.
