My Daughter On Her Thirtieth Birthday

A naked girl in the bath
Suds floating, eyes shining

A BIG girl riding Mr. Horsy-bike
Birthday party, green balloon

A special girl grooming Sheike
Sweat streaming, cheeks flaming

A Co-op girl in the kitchen
Baking sponges with her friend Rosie

A magic girl playing Ariel,
'Merrily, merrily shall I live now'

A gentle girl at my bedside
When I was sick with pneumonia

A grown-up girl working hard
Errol Street, massage

A beautiful thirty year old girl
Ready to fly

This was a lovely poem.
This is beautiful and very special to write a tribute to your daughter she must be very proud to have you as a empathetic or a compassionate mother that you are.

What a splendid tribute of Love for your little girl. Im so sorry that i missed this the day it was posted...your scope of topic-range is quite vast and as far as I can tell, very evenly proportioned, albeit this childrens piece was bred with a degree of justifiable extra impetus! lol!
