Fourteen

Ever-busy, my energetic

lithe and lovely little girl

is suddenly grown and filled with

zest for living.  Wittily

acerbic and unforgiving, with

 

incisive puns and jokes to please us

sarcastically she teases us.

 

Freckled, newly fashion-conscious,

outstandingly quirky, palely gorgeous,

unapologetic, grabbing chances with

ready zeal, my

teenage girl is tall now, she meets me

eye to eye, blue to brown,

enjoying the present, challenging the future,

not long now mine to nurture.
