National Poetry Day

To celebrate National Poetry day here is a poem about my Eldest's first year.


Three weeks too early
You arrived in a snowstorm
a fresh white blanket.

The baby basket
now full of bunnies and chicks
promises new life.

Blue skies above us
sunscreen makes your eyes water
collecting sea shells.

Carving a pumpkin
too small for trick or treating
silly fancy dress.

Red and green baubles
dangle from the indoor tree
careful do not touch.
