The Little One - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

What mystery this little one brings
when his birth in a bright spring
fills my heart with endless songs?
What mystery he comes with
bringing sunlight every hour
even if rain falls to the ground?

Oh, my, oh my...this priceless
jewel to my eyes that continues
to glow even in my dark nights!
How precious this little one is
to watch him grow each hour
And watch the first smile
and first giggle he offers to life.

mesmerized by the joy and beauty of the first grandchild, his fifth month.
